  • Fixing Windows In BMW

    Dallas BMW Window RepairBMW window regulators just don’t last forever, every week we replace broken window regulators. Our best advice with a new window regulator is to use it more than never! When the window is not used for an extended period, build-up in the window channel can cause the window to stick in the guide, when you go to open the window heavy loading takes place on the regulator to free the window from the guide and over time this will take a toll on the regulator assembly.
