Question about 1998 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I am having a problem with both my rear windows on my 98 528 sedan. Two days ago the right rear came down for my wife and then would not go back up. In trying to figure out the problem I accidently lowered the left rear about 6 inches and then it would not go up. Since it was both windows at the same time I would not think it was the regulators. It sounds like a power problem to me but I don't know where to start.

Taking the door panel off and checking the regulator would be a quick way to determine if it's electrical or mechanical. Post again if you need some direction on removing your door panel. It's a about a $100 and an hour of labor to replace a window regulator.

The widow regulator is bad. I believe yours is set up on a gear system. there is a long band that is plastic, of course that will lose teeth. The reason it stops. These are not hard to replace. remove the door panel. You will see the regulator and the track. You will need some tools and a drill to remove rivets. The track will pull out, then slide the new one in. you may have to remove the window to do this. Shop rate is 1 hour + materials.

My rear windows will not raise down..or up on


There is a button on the master switch (drivers) to turn off the rear windows make sure it's not depressed. If not the master switch is probably bad since you lost both rear window control . Power and grounds to the rear switches comes from the master switch.

Rear passenger side window stuck in down position


1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
2) You can repair this.

Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
The regulator will be visible at this point.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
Remove regulator attaching bolts.

Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.
