Thanks for the link.
My 5er is in for repair on the Schwintek slide right now and part of the repair is for them to lubricate the mechanism and synchronize the two motors. I will now know how to do this and hopefully keep it away from the repair center.
In one of the videos it is mentioned that the Schwintek slide should always travel the entire distance in and out to help keep it synchronized. I was not told that when I took delivery.

Was told about and found these two gems. These may help save unnecessary down time at the dealer. No one ever told me about this process or about proper "switch useage".
