To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This regulator for BMW E46 was easy to install, very reasonably priced, and is working great. I put it in a 2002 325xi. It arrived quickly and with free shipping, so it's a win all around. There are YouTube vids on the process, so watch one or two and you can easily do this yourself with just a few basic tools. Please keep in mind that you will need to re-attach the airbag wire before you turn on the power to move the window up and down, even if you are just testing it, or you will set a trouble light on the dash.
Very disappointed with this product and seller, window regulator lasted exactly 60 days and its only warranted for 30 days with a $40 price tag. You would think a part that expensive the seller would give a better warranty but that's fine it will be the last $40 this seller will see of mine. Do not buy, go to Ebay for $10 cheaper with free shipping and a 1yr warranty from carpartswarehouse.
two days after we installed it, the whole thing broke again. Just like the original part we replaced. The door pocket fills up with water now because the widow isn't tight enough in the door frame. if we take it out the window will fall and right now its to cold to drive around with a window stuck down.
After watching a few YouTube videos I decided to install this myself in my e46 325i. When I started putting this item actually in I thought it didn't fit, but one adjustment later and it for perfectly and works great.
