Installation kit for electric window lifts BMW 5 Series (E34)

Note:

Electric window lifts can only be retro-fitted in conjunction with various special equipment items installed on the pro­ duction line. See notes on Parts microfilm.

Instructions and illustrations are given here for left-hand­ drive cars. On right-hand-drive cars, various work stages must be carried out on the opposite side or in mirror-image fashion .

The electric window lifts are controlled at switches installed in the storage tray on the centre console. The electric window lifts in the rear can also be operated by separate switches on the rear doors.

When the ‘childproof’ safety catch, which is located on the stowage tray between the switches for the rear window lifts, is not depressed, the switches in the rear doors are isolated. The electric window lifts are operative when the ignition key is in position 2.

The window lifts can also be operated when the key has been removed from the ignition or is in position 0, if a front door is open.

The driver’s door window can be activated by pressing the switch briefly. Window movement is stopped by pressing the switch again.
