Doorwindow wrong closing?


Recommended Posts


I have a problem and I can't figure it out.

My door windows (left and right) doesn't go straight upwards.

What parts do I need to change or to fabricate?

Who can help me?

If it are parts, can you show it on a picture? Because I don't know al the english partnames.

Thanks in advance!

I explained it wrong I think.

On the top, in final position it closed right.

It's on its way to the top that it's go sloopwise.

I included a picture.

Is it bad or normal?

Hard to tell from one picture. Does the window roll up and down smoothly? If not, then your regulator may need to be replaced (they are still available new). Remove the door panel and watch the window and regulator action while cranking the handle. Might just need to be adjusted or tightened.

It's a bitchy job because the front and rear window tracks adjust in three planes: fore and aft, in and out, and up and down. The front track is attached to the vent window frame assembly, and must be parallel to the rear track in all three planes.

From your picture it appears that the rear track doesn't parallel the front track and is causing the glass to cock when moved. You'll have to remove the upholstery panel and acella sheet, and then start messing with the bolts that hold the tracks in place. See archives for more detailed information, but the bottom line is to adjust and try over and over again 'till the window goes up and down smoothly, and still seals properly to the door frame gasket.

When I swapped doors on my '69, it took me nearly four hours to install the vent window assy, door glass, rear track and window lift mechanism and get it all adjusted properly. A real PITA!

good luck

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
