Rear window issue HELP <Youtube>

Hey Guys.

So I am having an issue with my rear windows (see first part of the video).

The rear windows are getting stuck in the down position only when the window sits all the way down. When it attempts to go back up, it seems to catch on something.

I have found that if i kill the ignition on the car or turn on ACC mode it allows for the window to go up unhindered.

Is there a malfunction in the anti trap? How do i troubleshoot this further / which part is failing?

let me know if you find something out. I just started coding so I'll see what disabling the window safety does. I think its more mechanical than software but I'm lost otherwise.

Pretty common. It's the cable on the regulator fraying apart and getting tangled on itself. If it hasn't already, a plastic clip will break and then the window is not gonna go up anymore. This seller on amazon has it for your car at less then $50. Supposedly it will fit a 330xi/i 2006 e90. Make sure for yourself and that you order for the correct side. Pretty sure there is a difference between the left and right for the part.

The pics on this do-it-yourself is just red x's, but the youtube vid still works and shows you everything you need to know. I payed $91 at the dealership for my windo regulator, although tischer had it for $70 something +shipping. Just didn't want to wait. I thought it was very easy to do. Took less then an hour.

The hard part was syncing the window to fully close/open and behave the way it's suppose to.
