    I found this whilst looking for a replacement window switch, it has three switches. Is anyone able to tell me what the third switch is for?

    What I know about the 3 series can be written on the back of a postage stamp but further down the page it says:

    "THIS IS THE 3 BUTTON TYPE

    FITTED TO THE COUPE AND CONVERTABLE

    WITH REAR ELECTRIC WINDOW OPTION "

    I know I saw that bit

    My question is what the third, middle button is for? I have a coupe with rear electric windows and have a switch with two buttons. One for the front and one for the rear. I did drop the seller a message and ask but he hasn't got back to me. Just curiosity really!

    Hi Ben, the middle button controls all the windows in one go, more suited to the convertible, may work on others
    hope this helps

    Not sure if the non convertibles are pre-wire, remove your switches and see if the multiplug fits the switch, good luck
