    Hi guys,

    The electric window on my 318is won't work! I can hear a clicking noise when I try but there is no response from the window. Any ideas? Thanks

    the solenoid has probably packed up-its quite common in the older cars

    Thanks mate. Looks like a bit of a bugger to get out though!

    It is fiddly and if you do it try not to move the glass out of place because can be a mare to realign it correctly-I ended up changing my front doors instead as I got them cheap and easier too

    Thanks for the offer, I'll probably get a BMW specialist garage to look at first. What do you think it would cost to change the motor?
