trouble putting window up on 450 sl mercedes drivers side

Asked by Aug 23, 2016 at 06:51 PM about the 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The power window on the drivers side will not go all the way up

1 Answer


New window regulator (mechanism) required I'm afraid. It's a common problem on Mercedes cars. The window motor has a toothed gear which runs across a toothed arch on the mechanism. It's the last 4 or 5 teeth on the mechanism which break off.
