I think the question from my associate should be, "is it a two door or a four door, front or rear, left or right? Engine size is not significant. E36 require drilling of rivets to remove the window regulator/motor and it might also be a good idea to let us know what the problem is too.

Hello -

We haven't heard back from you. Hope all is well.

I wanted to know if your engine size to check the TSBs etc to see if there was anything else we could provide for assistance. As you see, Dr Hagerty and I are eager to assist you and working together on this.

As the Doc stated, unless the motor has been changed before it will require drilling rivets etc. Also, as he stated what is wrong with the window, or what is it doing.

For now I will go ahead and provide you with the removal/installation of the motor........

Between the Doc and I we will be glad to assist if this doesn't fix your problem.

Hello

Also, forgot to put this on too. It looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
