You don't see this issue in Volvo, as Volvo uses a "scissor" system to raise and lower window.

BMW will never learn from Volvo.

For those reading this thread, there are 2 distinct modes of failure:

1. The famous plastic clips (a few-dollar fix), well documented in forum.

2. The WR itself, pulleys break, cable mangled etc.
In this situation the question is OEM vs aftermarket.
- OEM for LF 51338254911 is $185 at dealer.
- Aftermarket includes URO, Dorman. I recently saw VDO for $95 (probably part of Siemens) but I do not know VDO reliability.
