02 330ci passenger window..

Only goes down about an inch and a half. Regulator time? Or is there a fix?

Yeah, that's what I'm going to do first. I ran across a couple threads on regulator repair. I'm all for Mcgyvering it first before getting a new one.

Yes, must remove door panel to see/confirm.
However, since it's an '02 (it's almost a given that the regulator busted.) Plus, if you go through all that trouble to begin with... why not just get a new regulator?

Jimmy-rigging (it really is only temporary fix) and then having to go back in there again is a hassle.
