What is the part number for the window regulator pivots?

I need the part number for the white window regulator pivots cuz my driver side window was rolling up crooked, and I found these to be the cause. Seems that one of them is worn down so there is too much play as they slide along the track. Thanks.

Try realoem and you should find the part number, or call your local bmw dealership.

o yea i tried realoem and looked for the window assembly but just couldn't find it. I'll go to the dealer tommorow and just ask them for it. How long do they usually take for the order?

If it's not in stock usually next day, morning. If the warehouses don't have it, it can go to 2-3 weeks. That happened to me with my lifters for my roof, they had to come from Germany.. so no car for 3 weeks

damn that sucks....but since its a small part that I would think they probably get orders for frequently, they should have it in stock....well see in the morning

If your window regulator is crooked, change it. Its about $100 bucks.

lol crap totally forgot about this thread

anyways i went to that dealership on around weston an highway 7. They had the stuff in stock and it ended up costing me around 10 bucks. Haven't had the time to put the new ones in yet, damn boss has been calling me in to work overtime this weekend

thanks for the link SickFinga, dunno why i couldn't find that myself at RealOEM. Hopefully I don't have to replace the whole regulator, as it doesn't look crooked to me. Ill be sure to update this thread with my results anyhow.

update: got off work early today and decided to go at it. I replaced both of them in the drivers side window. Turns out that one was worn out like i said before, but after removing the other one, i saw that it had the part that is covered by the hairpin missing. After about 45 mins, it was done and my door rolls up like new!!!

oh and I also decided to remove the old grease off the tracks cuz it looked kinda gummy and replaced it with white grease. It actually rolls up faster now!!!
