    If you hold the switch to raise it, does it still stop at the same point?
    What happens if you try pulling the window up while it's on it's way up?
    Just a few mods.
    If it ain't broken make it better and quicker!

    Window regulator

    Thanks so much for your reply! I loosened the clips , then the window set itself and I retightened them. Now my door handle is kind of dangling, not as tightly fastened as the others. It works but I am afraid it will fail if I don't put it in right, any suggestions? I am new to this site but have learned so much all ready and now have the e39 repair fever!!!!

    Look at how the door handle rod is clipped into each end.
