Dear BMW Colleagues:

On Saturday, the left rear window on my 1991, 325 Convertible
will not raise up, but will go down when I pust the power window
button. All the other windows are properly working.

I am asking for suggestions, do I try to a do it yourself or is this
one of those that I take to a repair shop and have fixed?

I am in the DC Metro area/live in Arlington. Please advise on shops
that repairs power windows that are reasonable $$$ wise and
thanks in advance. J

Switch the switches.... Extremely common. Happened to me yesterday in my 325i

Swap the right-rear switch with the left-rear and see if that remedies the issue on the left side. If the right side now has the problem, replace that window switch. (~$37 at the dealer.) If it doesn't, assume that it was simply a case of a bad/dirty contact.

My 325iS had the same problem on Friday (must have been a bad week for E30 switches); I swapped the right & left switches and now things are fine.

Dear BMW Colleague:

:)
I want to thank you, I switch the left with the right and the window now
works. This forum is terrific. J
