Hello? Can you confirm what doesn't work? Just the window or all of the functions on the switch unit?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
just driver side glass window only
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 10 months ago

so the other functions on the switch unit work?

when you try to operate the window, do you hear any noises or does the window move at all?
