Hi Leander_grif,
It sounds like the window regulator has come apart on you. This cable that you found hanging in the foot-well,is it similar to a brake cable from a bicycle? If yes is the answer, you need to replace the regulator assembly. Also if you try to raise or lower the window and you can here the motor run,this is a good indicator the mechanical side is the problem.Usually you cannot repair the regulator when it fails,the only option is replacement.
If you find this is the problem and want to try to replace it yourself,drop me a line and I will do my best to help you through the repair. Thanks,Chuck

I had an emergency brake cable snap somewhere (emergency brake cable goes to floor with no resistance). How do I tell where the broken cable is?

The cable runs under the car on the drivers side. if it broke under there it would be hanging down some. Most likely it broke at the foot pedal. There is a metal stud that is molded on the end of the cable and is prong to break first.

Promblem with Mercedes A180 electric concertina

sunroof module may need replacing, this tells the window to open and close also adjust window when doors locked, works of a magnetic alignment, but the reader can go on them, so you just need to replace this part, its bolted on or near the motor and the motor wires go into the unit. just replace with same part number.

If all fuses etc check out, look at wiring harness inside loom that is located near door hinge area of drivers door for bared or broken wires. Not uncommon for wires to get ruined especially at drivers door, as it is opened & closed the most.

Power windows

If this is the case, it is the power switch, which needs to be replaced for that specific window such exm. rear passenger, front passenger, rear driver, or master. Just replace the power switchfor that specific window and it should work. I have the same promblem and this is 99.9 percent solution to fix this promblem

Power windows

Remove the front door trim panel.
2. Disconnect the 2P connector from the motor.
Connect the motor terminals directly to battery voltage (12V) and check that the motor operates smoothly.
Next, reverse the polarity and check that the motor operates smoothly in the reverse direction.
If the operation is abnormal, replace the motor.
