1994 e36 318i window regulator - help

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with their window regulators, particularly drivers door? A few months ago my window was going up and down fine then i hopped in the car an hour later put the window down, heard an almighty crunch then my window jumped off the rails and wouldn't go up or down again, my partner and i managed to get a new regulator and fitted it, worked great then again same thing happened..
Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem/know any fixes? Could it be from the original seals around the window grabbing at the window or something else? Thinking of getting a secondhand door and cannibalising it to fix the window.. any suggestions?
any help would be much appreciated.
