the window regulator has failed. the door panel has to be removed first which requires removing the trim piece that is on the grab handle (extremely hard to remove without breaking) there are three of four screws that hold the door panel on. once the door panel is off, the vapor barrier has to be removed. don't tear it, it is there for a reason to keep water out of the vehicle. make sure you reseal it properly with window weld. once the vapor barrier is removed you will need to unclip the window glass from the regulator. i typically will take and break the tab that holds the window. once the window is loose, move the glass all the way to the top of the door. now remove the regulator, swap the motor over, and reassembly. i would recommend taking the vehicle to a bmw dealership, around $650 for the complete repair and the dealership will stand behind their repairs

SOURCE: window motor expired.
If you look very closely, the motor does unscrew from the regulator. However, getting the regulator is a bi***. Remove all the bolts to loosen the regulator and carefully work it around towards the biggest opening. The neumatic little hose is bendable, but be careful. Prior to doing this, remove a switch from another door to elimate a faulty switch. The plug comes down from above. You need to stick your hand inside the door well to find it. If you need the regulator too. just go down to the junk yard and practice removing the motor and regulator.

if you go to the dealer they will copy the mech manule it you ask them as they want you to get frustrated and take it to them
so go on and ask and if all else fails take it to them or goto local parts store like auto zone they can preint it off too
dealer is best bet though
