    Squeaky roof cure for E46 convertibles

    Thanks The blocks are inside the flocked channels on the roof sections. So the window goes up and sits in the channel and is stopped from hitting the top of the inside of the channel by the block. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my description. In the last picture if you trace up the window to window seal you should find a block inside the channel sitting above the front window. With the roof half collapsed you can easily get a small finger into the channel. Cheers, David

    This is the window reset procedure - taken from a BMW technician apparently. The language is certainly confusing enough! Initialization is performed on the power window switch of the relevant door. Requirements for correct initialization: • Initialization with engine running • Convertible top, doors and windows closed Initialization comprises: • Erasure of initialization • Reinitialization An initialization must be performed: • In the event of malfunctions, e.g. no one-touch control function, no opening or if available no comfort function is possible • After the power window drive has been replaced • After work is carried out on the power window mechanism • After a power supply interruption, e.g. disconnection of the battery or disconnection of the power supply to the door • After the door window glass has been removed and installed or replaced • After adjustment work on the door window glass • After adjustment work on the convertible top • After replacement of seals Erasure of initialization: • Open door window glass fully • Operate power window switch in "Open" position four times within 10 seconds This erases initialization of the power window, anti-trapping protection and toll function are inactive. Check whether one-touch control (toll) function is inactive, otherwise repeat procedure. Reinitialization: Avoid a break between the two steps! • Open door window glass fully • Operate and hold power window switch in "Close" position (second switch stage) • Once the upper end position has been reached, hold power window switch in "Close" position for approx. 2 seconds longer • Open door window glass fully • Operate and hold power window switch in "Close" position (second switch stage) • Once the upper end position has been reached, hold power window switch in "Close" position for approx. 2 seconds longer __________________

    Thanks - very kind of you. You will find a piece of rubber (not sure what it is) about 5cm long by 1cm deep by 1.5cm wide (from memory) stuck to the inside of the channel above the door glass. I would love to know exactly where it sits as both of mine are loose. Getting them back to where they are meant to sit feels important as, for example, I don't know if they sit far enough along towards the back of the car for the rear window to also hit them when raised. If you could check and let me know where they sit in relation to the window channel end that would be really useful. The window reset would then ensure that the glass wasn't closing too tightly against that pad. Thanks, David

    Hi Shock, A bit. I'm going to re-clean the windows and polish them. Everyone seems to warn against silicon spray in the window channels so I have avoided that. The theory being that the flock on the channels against the polished window should not do much. Sun visors can be very noisy where they touch the roof bar. The wedges sit inside the glass channels in the roof frame. Effectively, they are on top of the glass and stop the glass sitting against the inside edge of the channel. I think they have a big impact and can cause a squeak them selves so they will be my next point of focus. Are you having issues with yours? Cheers, David
  7. Hi Guys, Can you give me a price for a 17" space saver wheel used on a 330d or 330i as apparently I can use it on an M3. Is there a cover that you can buy for the wheel once I have the tyre? If you could do a tyre 135/80 - 17 then please give a quote for that; if it was fitted that would be even better! ;-) Thanks and regards, David

    It does not look to be any of those parts; it may be coming up as a wiring loom for the door which plugs into the B pillar. It is the locking cover that sits over the monoblock wiring plug thing from the door which has been broken. I have no idea how! Cheers, David
  11. Hi Everyone, Could you please quote for part number 9224365-02? Its from the passenger side rear door and is the clip that holds the wiring plug from that door into the B pillar. Thanks, David
  12. Thanks David, That is good to know. Hopefully I can rescue the existing ones but at least if I cannot I won't get held up. Cheers, David
