BMW E36 window stuck in open position

by John Avis | December 21, 2016

My passenger side window on my 1998 318is coupe has been stuck in the closed position for some time. I can usually get it going by removing the door trim and then hitting the window motor with a mallet.

About me

I am a bit of a 3 series fanatic, having owned a couple of E30s and a few E36s, plus a few parts cars.

This blog is a place to share my experience and knowledge.
