I remember you buying the car with rattly windows.
I cant swear to it, but I think in the original thread where you asked some questions about the car & its inspection issues ,it was suggested that you ask the seller to get these things fixed or budget accordingly with the price.
I know you had issues with the rear door lock & a rattle back then.
You are now dealing with a rattle that can befall ANY E34.
I suggest you remove the door card again & getting someone to operate the window lifter switch, while you watch what is going on.
Then move the window down gradually detaecting where the most movement is or where the most rattle is & when it stops.
I would suggest that if the window only rattles only when fully closed, you strip the door out of all the clips & plastic parts holding the door glass in place.
I guess the lack of replies indicates a generally high degree of frustration with the manner in which you are tackling this "issue"
