Thanks for this great info which helped me diagnose and fix my rear electric window on my e39.
What actually worked for me was tapping the motor with a socket wrench while pressing the button. The problem with the motor was caused through lack of use and I suspect that even a good whack on the outside of the door whilst activating the switch may well alleviate the problem in some circumstances. Certainly worth a try, I'd say!

Which DIY Procedure (if any) Sunroof rail endcaps
Frankie I believe your spot on. While pulling the headliner I noticed the caps. I removed the right side since it's that side she leaks. The cap had what looked like a very thin piece of string which I recognized as silicone. I thought, gee that's interesting but there isn't that much to seal. Upon closer observation the car towards the interior aside looks open to the interior anyway. So I assumed it may have been an assembly helper. But as stated elsewhere all my drainage is clear and the seal is still very pliable. She leaks standing still. It may leak while braking but I wasn't aware since I knew I had to address the leak anyway. Once again thanks. If indeed it's it I would have shot myself before finding this since Bentleys make no mention of this.

Saw this, BMW badged, vehicle drive past me 7 years ago. Had no idea what it was, but knew I liked what I saw.
Didn't really like BMW'S until I saw the 840...
Just retired 12/16.
Found an 840 in Frankie's neck of the woods; I'm looking to see if this will be the one for me...
Great site Frankie!!!

Great site, congratulations and thanks.
My driver's seat is kind of stuck, the seat goes back or fwd with a lot of effort and noise, like if a brake had not been released when I act on the switch. It happened from one day to the next. Twenty yrs ago the same problem happened and was quickly fixed by my old mechanic, who unfortunately passed away. Now, BMW proposes dismantling the seat (expensive) to check it out but they admit that they do not have knowledge of the specific problem and that their service manual does not detail this part of the seat.
Anyone can help?
