  • window thinks the door is slightly ajar?

    I've been having a problem recently where while I'm driving, the window keeps moving up and down that half an inch when the door closes. The problem is that this is occurring while the door is completely closed and I'm driving. I didn't really know how to search this on google so I thought you guys might know best. Any help is appreciated!

    It’s the door striker microswitch. That’s body side part, not the door side.

      Unless it's a really old E36. The early models have the switch inside the doorlock, on the exposed part that 'connects' to the striker.

      I see no built year of the OP so just mentioning it just in case.

          It's best to confirm using RealOEM.com and using the last 7 digits of your VIN to search for parts. That will yield the correct part number as Mpar mentioned... though the one I linked is applicable to 95.

          My car did the same thing. I even caught the dome lights going on and off in the middle of the night on the garage security camera.

          Replaced the door latch/switch in the jamb and all was well. The switch itself had a chunk that had gone missing over time.

            Dome light turns on and off all the time when I'm driving haha. Good to hear that that fixed the problem.

          funny how as the cars age they all seem to present the same issues around the same time. My 95 did this a bit ago too ha ha
