    Hi, I purchased a set of door cards and seats from my mate they are all fine except the drivers side door card is sort of snapped in half as if the first car it was on got hit in the door.
    I was wondering if any one could help me or tell me where to get a coupe door card with the leather insert red preferably, but i can always get it re-covered if needs be. I am also in search of a window motor for the same side but I having a bit of a problem finding the right size and shape as there seem to be a lot of window motors available for N reg E36's!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ive had no working window and no door card for long enough.

    Is the leather insert broken at all?

    If you are careful you can remove the leather centre trim and re-attach it with small screws. Thats what i did when i changed my interior. All you will have to do is find a door card in the correct colour and swap over the insert

    How would you go about getting it off door card because i had the same idea, so to see if it would work I tried to get the original insert off the original door card and it went horribly wrong broke into little pieces it was like glued on? Any places you can recommend to find a door card the outside color is just black so i didn't think it would be that hard but Ive been struggling same story with the window motor?

    The inserts are held on with plastic rivet type things. I just used a drill and drilled the heads off, then the insert just fell out. Post up a pic of the rear and ill talk you through it
    Speak to these guys re a window regulator
