03 325xi window won't roll down

So I have a 325xi and my passenger window rolls up and down but not more than half way. I'm not very car savvy but I've heard the window regulators are common problems in these cars, anyone know if this is a regulator problem or something else?

Stop using that window before you make it worse.

You have to remove the door panel to see the problem, but my guess is the plastic runner broke and you might be able to zip tie it.

Search e46 window regulator repair and read away.

Got to YouTube and search for Otto from Bavauto's repair. Don't go cheap unless you just to practice. OEM or Uro premium are two of the better ones.
