Hello - I have a 1998 diesel tourer with 190000 miles on the clock.
The drivers side window is riding outside of the rubber guides - in part because of the wear to the rubber. The glass when fully "closed" goes beyond the recess. I need to replace the door rubbers but this alone I think will not resolve the problem as the mechanism has movement. If left to its own devices the window will operate as above but if guided by hand I can locate it roughly in place.

Two questions are the rubber guides difficult to replace and how

Is there an adjustment point on the mechanism to realign the window.

I have had a look through past threads but remain unclear

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Keith

Sounds to me like the glass is running up the outside of the inner door runners. Theres a guide on here to fix thr fault for when the windows pop off their runners. I now service these on any e36 I buy. I suggest doing this which will probably fix your problem and make sure your window doesnt break in the future, it only requires a few tools and grease and silicone spray.

I have the same problem.

Getting your window to sit back in the runners is not so much of a problem and the ruber piece you are talking about is not so hard to replace but getting your window to line up again is the problem i am currently having.

I have spent ages on it so far and might just send it into the local garage and have it corrected coz im getting P****d off.:mad

The rubber piece you are talking about can be sourced from your local BMW garage but can cost a fortune i was quoted £55!:jaw-dropping

But go to your local scrappy and you can pick one up for £10! i did and it does the job.

Thanks for the help

I will have a go at sorting out the window over the weekend with the help provided. I will see how it goes and let the group know

Cheers for all the help
