Default help with door/window issue

Just bought an e46 m3, coupe, manual. The drivers side window won't auto dip when the door opens or closes so the class hits the frame when i try and close the door. The passenger works fine so at first i thought i needed to perform some sort of reset? not sure if i did that right though. I then noticed that the car wasn't showing the door as open therefore the sensor might be broken? the lock seems to work fine but its not registering that the door is open? I'm guessing this would affect the window dipping on opening the door? is there any other fix for this or do i need to buy a new part?

Put the car into ignition (don't start it)
Open the window, then close the window completely
With the window closed, let go of the button, wait 1 second and then press it in the close positon and hold it for 10 seconds.

It sounds to me that until you've fixed the sensor on the door and it knows when it is open/closed, then any amount of resetting the window won't help.

Yeah me too. So I'd have to remove the locking mechanism/ lock actuator to sort it right? And possibly need to fit a new one?

Sorry - not a job I've had to attempt yet. This might give you some pointers in the right direction though:
