need driver side window motor

Post by jlbsam » Sat Feb 27, 2016 6:57 pm

Help!! I'm looking for a window motor for the driver side on my 81 633. If anyone has one or knows someone with one, I'd like to buy it!

Are you sure it isn't the switch or fuse? :-k
After checking the fuse, you can change the switches around to find if it is or isn't the switch.
Be extra careful when pulling the switch from it's seat. The lower cover might dislodge allowing the wires to
fall out.
Then you'll have to figure out where each wire goes by copying the one that is sill intact. It's sorta tricky.
Ask me how I know? #-o
BMW shoulda put the lower cap fitted to the inside instead of on the outside of the switch body! :roll:
Good luck,,,,Greg

turns out the motor is ok, it's the regulator. I have one that I bought from another BC member, so I'm hoping it will work. cross your fingers!
