I replaced my window regulator on my 1995 bmw 318i and for some reason the regulator slips out from the track where the clips attach to the track of the window regulator. Perhaps you may have a work around for this troubling issue. The repair is on the right (passenger) side of my car.
My car has 180000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there. Check the wheels on the regulator base and see if it’s broken or cracked. If the wheels are good in the track, then check the cable inside the regulator and make sure that it is tight. A loose cable on the regulator will cause the base to turn a little making it jump the track. If you cannot find anything wrong with the regulator, then you may have gotten a defective regulator. If you need further assistance with your window regulator issue, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
