    I am having a few problems with my electric windows. When i do a full click so that the windows go fully up on their own they will go up around 6 inches then drop back down. This happens on both windows. I have tried the keeping the button in trick but to no avail. Any info appreciated cheers.

    mine does this on the driver side, but it does go back up when I try again. I have noticed with mine when its going up it looks like the glass twists slightly which makes me think its not sitting right in the frame as its being raised. Might be worth taking the door card off and having a look at it going up and down, see if you can spot anything obvious

    Have you tried to reset them by holding down the button for approx 10 secs, and winding the window back up and holding the button again for 10 secs?

    Yeah tried that. Would it do it if the runners were a bit dry and need greasing ?

    No, but faulty window regulators would.

    It just seems atrange that both windows are doing exactly the same thing. Leads me to think it might be an electrical fault.

    If that's the case, then it will be from the general body electric module.

    The windows do get stiffer to go up over the years as the grease dries out, so by all means try lubing up the window rubbers with some silicon spray, also re-lube the window runners where the sliders operate along, it "could" be the module is detecting the extra resistance and the anti trap system is kicking in.

    Also while the door card is off check the regulator is still tightly secured to the door and the window doesn't tilt to much, it can be adjusted if it is as this won't help.

    You need to adjust it on the regulator tilt arm, shown here http://www.101projects.com/BMW/Proje...s/DSC05383.JPG

    The arm is also shown in the top left here http://www.101projects.com/BMW/Proje...s/DSC05404.JPG

    If the arm tilts ALOT then it's more likely to be a failed clip. See picture C here http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/tech...ws/Pic3-01.jpg
