I'm thinking either the bushings need to be a replaced or maybe the motor or regulator. Not sure yet.

I also think it's possible the window isn't adjusted properly. Looks like it's pushing against the seal too much.

The problem is only on the drivers side. Hopefully someone can shed some light.
could be one, or some or all of the above. start with adjusting the window.
If that doesn't work. then check the regulator, and since you're in there look into the motor.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
