    Hi there my passenger side window (electric) won't go down and when open the door the window doesn't drop down or go up when I shut it. I was thinking is it the window motor that has gone any help would be great.

    is there any other issues with the window
    i had the same problem only the window would go up and down slightly when the door was closed
    it turned out to be the striker pin on the door latch had worn, £23 later and a new latch from bmw and it was sorted
    might be something to check before you pull the door apart

    you also dont say what year it is from as the location of the door switch is different on the earliest models.
