    Is there a click sound from the motor when you try to put it up or down?

    Sounds like you got a door off a later car.....the early ones were pre-ZKE (body control module) so things like window operation were controlled differently.
    Have you got a set of wiring diagrams for them?

    Here is where to get the wiring diagram for your car. I checked they have your year/model. BMW ETM - Electrical Troubleshooting Manual
    If all else fails, there isn't much inside the door on those, can't you swap over the door loom, and any bits that might differ, like central locking motors?

    I've exactly the same problem, got a 97 iS and both windows have slowly died (I think) and got a donor car but the problem is that the donor is a 93. Me thinking it would be a simple swap but no the wiring is different. Got the wiring diagrams in the hope I can merge the two together?
