Having problems with your 1998 BMW 318i ?
My windows on my BMW 318i wont go up or down, I already changed the fuses. What can the problem be ?
This happens quite a bit with windows on mercedes and maybe other cars. The window glass slide channels dry out and the window sticks, this is taken as a signal that the window is fully up and the motor is tripped off. Sometimes if the window fails at half way it is still possible to lower the window but it will not raise. Clean out the channel with a cloth soaked in washing-up liquid and scrub hard. Allow to dry and lubracate the channels lightly with lithium grease, this will ease the windows movement.If you are caught away from home just keep rocking the window up and down, with an interval of about 1 second between each operation, and hopefully the window will start to creep up a little. As soon as you have any glass showing, hold the window pane between both hands, and assist the window up hard. You should be able to get the window up eventually. Once home carry out the cleaning operation, and grease,
