I have a problem with the windows in a '85 300sd, the window motor
and the transmission thing work fine but that quarter circle thing with
the teeth has some of the teeth worn out. Is this hard to replace? Is it
hard to remove the sheet metal that is behind the door siding?
Thank in advance for any help!
PS What is that relay with the 10A fuse for? Says 'safety' or something
in German and it made my tach work :-)
First unbolt regulator from glass retaining plate (the metal plate the window in
pressed into), then using button on console retract mechanism all the way down.
Now, here's the possibly tricky part: on my car there are 3 cutouts on the door
panel which allow access to the 3 ea. 5 mm allen headed bolts which hold
electric motor onto regulator. You have to unbolt motor and leave in door when
you remove regulator.
If the access holes aren't there, the MB Body/Chassis manual provides precise
instructions on where to drill holes.
Once motor is removed, unbolt regulator from door panel, slide aft, pull from
door. Hope this helps!
The factory manuals are the only ones you want to get.

We don't get books any more, its all on the computer. Although all the
pages I ever seem to need in the books are missing anyway :-/
Wiring diagrams in the books were much better, one big fold out sheet
of paper. From the CD you have to print out countless sheets of paper
and stick them all together...
