this is my first post, sorry to roll in and start a thread
right from the start: I drive a 1993 325is, cold air intake, eibach sport suspension kit, tinted tail lights, soundwerks speakers. so i havent done too much yet, but budget and wife dont allow for more. plus i have some pesky little issues i want to address first, which is the reason for this post, i need some help form you pros:
1st problem: the auto window down feature (the one when you open the door and it shifts a quarter inch down) does only work sometimes (1 in 100 or os). I have consulted the bentley book which pointed to the hall sensor in the door striker, which is one possible option to have in a 1993 325is. that wasnt it, cuz i dont have a hall sensor in the door striker
, hence i must be having the micro switch version which is where i am stuck, which part of the door excatly contains this micro switch which i assume is faulty?
is it in the door handle it self or is it the part that catches the striker (the mechanics inside the door, sorry dont know the proper name). this is also happening on both doors, which is odd so any other suggestions on where to look are greatly appreciated. the windows btw are calibrated (the push button auto down and auto up works consistently on both doors).
2nd problem i think is very common, I need new interior door panels as mine are delaminating, also the previous owner was a jerk, he fooled around with it for whatever reason and tried to put them back together with super glue
I have the 2 speaker version, black-black 2 door for the 325is 1993, if anyone has a source for used ones (i am not going to pay 600 bucks for sure)
please let me know
while i am at it, anybody got a simple trick to run wires from the headunit to the trunk?
TIA for any help you guys have for me. your cars are pimp
