    Hi I have a problem with my drivers window. When I go out and unlock it with the fob, the drivers window nudges down aggressively, after about 30 seconds if I havnt turned the ignition, it pops back up too far. If I just undo the door if its unlocked, the 'pinch' function doesnt work so when I shut the door again it doesnt close fully unless I undo the window manually a jar. Any ideas? Ive tried the resetting method and I dont know what the offending component is called. Many thanks as it is a chore in the rain. Sorry to go on................

    There is a micro-switch in the door where the clasp hits when you shut the door that was so full of grease that it didnt function properly, with a clean up it is ok if you throw the door open but needs replacing, just gotta find out what the component is called. LSD problem is taking priority though
    e36 2.93 lsd problem :(
