Hi guys,
new to the forum, live in windsor, ontairo.
Anyway just wondering if anyone has/had a problem with the drivers side window glass breaking? It seems every couple months well I close my door and the window is about halfway down it will shatter. Has anyone heard about this happening frequently to an e30?

My cars a 87' 325.


Thanks.

I would blame the lifter or the door. One is most likely warped putting stress perp. to the glass. Does it take some effort to get the replacement glass in?
I'd say track down a new lifter mech.
But I've never replaced the glass in my E30 so I should probly shut up.
