The motor isn't bad. it doesn't get enough use to go bad. The clip holding the cable that makes the window go up and down broke.
google: window regulator repair clip 1997 bmw 528i. 97's and 98's are similar. 99 they changed them. they all break. they all break in the same place! It's the clip. 25 bucks order a repair kit from the guy. it's the same work as buying a $150 new regulator that will break again anyway

I am not familiar with this car, but most with electric locks can be unlocked the old fashioned way by placing the key in the lock and turning. Barring that, call for a wrecker or locksmith to open the car, or somehow get power to the electrical system to power the locks. If the hood is open, or openable from the outside, just use jumper cables to apply power. Perhaps you could get to the starter feed cable (or even the batter feed) from underneath the car. I hope this gives you some idea that is helpful in resolving your problem.

look for screws on the handle inside or under the arm rest next pop a corner of the panel away its normaly held on with door clips they are a little hard to pop off you might break a few but local dealer should have more most likely some will break if the window wont go up you probaly have a bad motor or window regulator if window goes up slow then stops its more than likely a motor possibility of having a bad window switch

I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.
