E81 118i 2007 m sport window problem

Post by OvEr_KiLL » Wed May 16, 2018 9:35 pm

ive just got this car and the drivers window goes down with the automatic click ok but it i try and get it up it goes up maybe a quarter of the way and goes down a little bit again and then i have to click the switch again and i have to do this until the windows decides to go up fully.
do you reckon it just needs coded by holding the button down and then holding it up for a few seconds or it needs a new motor/regulator
thanx in advance

Try the simple things first like the window reset procedure you mentioned.

ok i re synched it myself and its working fine now (i hope)! also the back washer jet didnt work so the parts manager came out and helped me fix it and ordered me a new one from my chassis number which im picking up tomorrow for 15 plus vat
cant recommend lloyds enough :) except he said they should of told the dealer yesterday that the washer jet didnt work when it had the 2 recalls done and they should of re synched the window!

hi there, you put the window fully to the top..
hold the double click all the way until the bottom and keep holding it for 7 seconds
let go
then hold the double click upwards all the way to the top and keep holding it for 7 seconds
