Very tricky operation as the cable winds on one end of the spool and off on the other. I bought a used, complete assembly at local auto recycler (junk yard) fairly easy fix. good luck, cb

SOMETHING POPPED IN THE DRIVERS DOOR AND NOW THE WINDOW WILL NOT GO UP


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms.

The small popping noise was some component in the Window Operator Mechanism breaking - the cable may have snapped, a plastic pulley may have broken, a plastic cable guide may have broken - it could be anything.

The reason you can't see the Window Operator Motor or the track is that it is behind the moisture barrier - remove it by carefully peeling it back at the edges of the door frame (so that it can be re-adhered back to the same door frame location without adding adhesive/sealant).

When you get to the Operator, be prepared to have to drill out some number of aluminum rivets to remove the OEM Operator, and, when installing the new Window Operator Mechanism, you'll have to replace these rivets with your own Pop Rivets, or they can be replaced with small hardware store nuts/bolts/washers (mechanics choice). Have an assortment of both ready before you attempt your Window Operator Mechanism replacement.

If the broken component of your Driver's Door Window Operator Mechanism is actually a missing/broken rivet, then replacing that would fix the Window.
But these rivets hardly ever fail - what fails is plastic components in the Window Operator Mechanism.

The drivers window on my mercedes E200 is getting stuck when it gets half way up. The window looks like it is falling forward but it looks like it is the houseing unit. Anyone come across this before and...


You don't need to go to a Merc dealer, take out the panel and have a close look at the window mechanism, it might have just pop out from the rail, if not you can get a mechanism in a motor parts shop (non genuine) with a 12 months warranty, and fit it by yourself or with some help.

When my window rolls down the cable snaps loose that rolls the window down. i just replaced the motor on the window


normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). Autopartswarehouse.com (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!

Cable on the power window motor is off track


You need to replace the regulator. When cable comes off track it usually binds up in the motor. motor, and cable all come preassembled as one unit, known as the regulator.

Replacing Passenger Window Motor


Hello, I have a 2004 Avl. I replaced the driver door window mechanism myself. You need to pry out the electric window controls with a dull blade as to not tear the vinyl. Disconnect the controls carefully. There are small release clips that hold the switch buttons onto the electric base. Then the arm rest, there is a long screw under the armrest. At the front towards the mirror there is a long screw under a round plastic snap cover. I believe it is a small metric bolt. Next grasp the bottom end of the door cover and pull with a sharp snap. Continue around the door panel gently pulling the snaps loose from their base. The door panel cover does not cantain screws only snaps. There is a clear plastic water barrior you need to be careful to peel without tearing and place on a clean flat surface with sticky side up. I had to replace the window track and motor all in one piece, can't just replace track. I purchaces the mechanism on-line parts store.
