    Hi, I have just got myself an e36 cab. There is a problem with the drivers door handle. Its kinda broken and the drivers window wont come down at all. Can someone tell me if the problems are linked?

    Thanks

    You need to remove your door card and have a look,

    Thanks for that, yeah its pretty badly broken, I can just manage to open the door if I position it correctly, but Its kinda hit or miss.
