BMW e39 5 Series Window Regulator Malfunction

BMW e39 5 Series Window Regulator Malfunction

If your BMW e39 5 series has a window regulator malfunction, we can help! We specialize in affordable BMW service in Jacksonville, FL.

The BMW e39 5-series includes the 525i, 528i, 530i, 540i and M5, and was available for purchase in the United States from 1997-2003. These long-lasting cars are still traveling the highways, however, they have been known to have problems as the vehicle ages. One common problem is a faulty window regulator.

Despite being constructed of tiny cables and plastic pulleys, the window regulators can take a lot of wear and tear. The German manufacturers build them like this, to ensure they are light and durable. Even the best-built window regulator can break or fail with time. This is also very common in vehicles that drive around with young children in the backseat. A faulty window regulator can cause the glass to get stuck at the midway point, or the window may refuse to go up or down.

A good preventative is to always keep your passengers from “playing” with the windows, like making them go up and down, repeatedly. Also, do not slam the doors as that can put your window tracks out of alignment. You should also keep the window guides free from trash, foreign objects, and sticky liquids. All of these things can put unnecessary stress on the regulators and cause them to prematurely fail.

If your window does not roll up or down properly, or if it shakes, rattles, or is misaligned in any way, contact a specialized Bimmer service expert at Bavarian RennSport to resolve the problem. It may seem like an “easy fix,” but these window regulators are part of an intricate system that should be repaired by a qualified individual.

Bavarian Rennsport is a local, independent BMW service shop with BMW mechanics that have dealer-level expertise at a fraction of the expense.
