Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
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.

It looks like it is falling forward because the window is "Off Track." Some older windows have snaps near the rear of the window to keep it in the track, they break and the windows lean forward.
The newer style windows use tracks in the doors they rely on. What has happened is your motor drives a Metal Cable on a Plastic Block and tackle like gear, it is only 1 gear the cable rides on. This cable jumps tracks in the gear, In your case it jumped right when the window was half way up. The plastic gear the cable rides on is probably eaten up by the cable, or the cable itself has torn and created a nasty mess.
Sometimes to replace a cable and gear means replacing a very expensive motor. Sometimes you can just buy the cable and track. It is very tedious and very hard to do for someone that doesn't have skill. Ribbits should be drilled out and bolts and nutts should be used where the factory ribits was removed from. Most of the time this track and cable can be replaced if you can find it. Your best bet is a junk yard. Once your window starts to fail, Do not touch it. Service it immediatly to prevent further destruction of the gear or cable. Lots of the time they just come off track, They can simply be put back on. If you keep rolling it up and down this creats problems and the gears and cable gets eatin away.
