any idea as to why my rear windows are intermittent? I already tested with some spare window switches.

it wasn't that which wasn't allowing the mech to work. it was jammed. I tested this after I took it out and then compared it to the replacement. They worked differently. the added bonus was the lock cylinder.

I think I've had 14 bmw's in 4 years.
