2nd law of thermodynamics. Something like all things go from order to disorder or whatever. Shit happens.

Will remain a mystery. Bought an used window from eBay, kinda spendy. To think I was bitching about e10 BMW 2002 part prices, sheesh.

Starter also deciding not to work, damn it.
Left sitting too long I guess.

Hopefully you have the BMW wrench used to get to the bolts on the starter. It's a PITA if you don't.

I learned that the hardest way possible when the starter went out on a 633 I had years ago.

Really bad luck...maybe crack one window open just a very small touch on each car....baking in a hot sun is never good for anything.

Did the starter about 9 years ago and wasn’t as bad as the ‘brake bomb’ nightmare.

Deleted the broken vacuum assist device on the ol Audi today and boy was it a treat carving through the canyons. Will be better when I swap the turbo in.
