    Default Drivers Side Rear Window Problems

    After changing the coolant and transmission fluid , I decided to treat my car to a nice wash & wax , I was relieved to think that no maintanance was necessary for a while , then as I parked inthe driveway listening to my favorite song i tried to open the windows so I can hear it outside the car , the rear drivers side window wouldnt go down....!!
    First time for me to have a problem with the car ,,
    I can hear a "bump" noise when i push on the switch just like the one you hear when you try to close an already closed window , I figured the switch is working ..All the other windows are working too , and this one was always working ... until NOW
    Anyone know what can suddenly go wrong and what i have todo to fix it
    thanks

    Default Re: rear window stuck

    Try opening the door & slamming it closed with the ignition on and holding the switch down. Sometimes the channels get gummed up.

    thanks a million ......... you saved me from ripping my door open tomorrow !
    Do you think I should consider adding some silicon based product to the windows or is this just a one time thing ??

    that gets done to all of the window problems that comes through the shop, fixes 1/2-1/3 of them, and a few more are fixed by a more sprited atack once the door panel is off

    Good old fashioned fix. I remember having to do stuff like that on my old 1984 733i.

    Default Sometimes the glass comes unglued . . .

    . . . then eventually you have to go in and bond in back in.
    The slamming gets old after a while (three yearss in my case - hot days only).
