This is a common complaint on several models. Usually it's due to either dried grease in the wind-up mechanism, or corroded switch contacts. If you remove the door trim, look at the cable and pulley system and check for the grease problem. Usually a cleaning of all this old crud, followed by fresh, light grease will help. A little silicone aerosol spray down the glass channels will also help.

I had the same problem on mine, I did everything to try to get them to work right, even cleaned out the fusebox and bought new window switches....
The final fix?
check out these websites;

Apperantly there's a considerable amount of voltage loss throughout the wiring, switches and poor contacts at the fuse box.
I ran 12V straight from the battery to the new relays that I installed behind the passenger kick panel and "presto".
Easy way to see if this is your problem is when you take your door panels off, apply 12 volts directly to the motor, you can't go wrong with the wires, if you hook them up one way it goes up, reverse polarity and it goes down.
good luck.

Hi,
Mine is an '84 400i whose windows do not quite close.
I understand the post.
What is the routine for door panel removal?
Thanks,
Greg
