Wow, not one single response. I thought this was a common problem.

Anyway, a week after clearing the codes, it's back. So, I've replaced the gas cap and the purge control valve, and can't get...

P0443

I've been getting the SES light intermittently for several months, caused by code P0443, which is for "Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit". So, I went ahead and replaced the...

I either missed that one, or it was posted after I went ahead and replaced mine. But also, I don't have a lift (I wish!). Not that it matters (to me, anyway) at this point, but does the circlip...

Is there any actual recent, relevant data on the unreliability of split CV Boots? Yanking an axle to replace a boot is an INSANE amount of work - I could replace 20 of the split boots in the amount...

I checked all four pullies - the cables are securely contained within each of them. There just isn't any visual sign of a problem with the regulator, but it's definitely off-kilter, which seems to...

Of course - there's no way to access that bolt without removing that plastic plug.

So here's what I found. I took the regulator/motor out, and noticed that when I did my zip-tie repair a couple of years ago, I seem to have left the heads of the zip ties in a position where there's...

I've seen this product before (AFTER I replaced my boots, unfortunately). Looks like a fantastic idea - if they make one that fits the X5, I'd definitely try this before going through the agony of...

If you roll your passenger side window all the way down, does it make it all the way up? I can roll mine down no more than a couple of inches - any more than that causes it to slow to a crawl. No...

Thanks; yeah, I suspect it isn't my motor, since it drives the window down just fine, and I don't see why the motor would become too "weak" over time to drive the window back up. I suspect as you...

I may end up doing that, but from what I can see, the zip ties I installed a couple of years ago seem to be holding very securely - when I raise the window, there's not visible "rocking" or any sign...

I'm not surprised, given the very limited access. The thing that really sucks about this job is that I'll probably have to completely remove the regulator, hopefully be able to diagnose whether the...

Thanks - well, it's a fair bit of work just to figure out what's wrong, but at least I see what I'm up against. I can't make it to the dealer today, but I'll pick up a pair of clips tomorrow.

No, the motor is buried behind the door frame - removing the speaker didn't improve my access to it at all. There's no way to remove the motor without moving the regulator several inches toward the...

Thanks for the suggestions. Looks like I've got lots of things to test. I'll tear it all apart asap and try to figure out if it's the motor, the drive gear, the regulator, or something else.

That's good to hear. Febi is so much less expensive than "BMW original". On a vehicle this old, it really doesn't make sense to pay top dollar for replacement parts.

Thanks for all the very useful responses. I also have to order a new coil, and autohausaz has free shipping for orders over $75, and the door handle carrier and coil will easily put me over.

Doing a little checking, it looks like this may be the part I need:

Genuine BMW 51218243616OE Door Handle, Exterior (http://www.autohausaz.com/pn/51218243616OE)

Is this correct?
