Just to update the thread, O'reily claimed they don't sell the butyl tape anymore and that I should check Home Depot for the 3M Strip Calk.

Thank you Brett for recommending the tarminator...it really clean it up very well and I haven't even wipe it with the alcohol yet. Also, how do one remove that clip/lock in the green circle? I need to change the bushing that connect the window motor to the regulator...see pic below.

Thank you M_Parallel...I would never have thought that...I'll put some loctite on when I put it back together because that's where I believe I have an annoying rattle...

On my 328i the 4 rivets holding the motor to the door were loose. Drilled them all out and fitted proper nuts, bolts and washers. This was over 10 years ago. They still hold today and removing the whole assembly is a breeze now.

Please try this before wasting money on a new window motor. Take the motor off the door and take it apart. Clean the commutator, it's the area on the armature that comes into contact with the brushes, with emery cloth or very fine grit sandpaper. My passenger motor went dead and worked like new after I did this. These motors do not work enough to wear out. I suspect that commutator surface oxidizes resulting in "Dead spots" that prevent the brushes from working.

Thank you Brent S, for responding...yes, I have learned the hard way, except it was a used motor instead of new. That was what I had expected after buying the used motor and discovering that nothing was wrong with the old motor. Parts (the bushing and clips) are on the way.
