2001 Mercedes-Benz C240 Question: Back Window

Just recently rolled back window down and now it will not roll back up .... I hear the motor going up and down as I press the button, but no window comes up. What is my problem and what guesstimate for repair can you provide me? -
Answer 1
It sounds like you have a broken window regulator. Mercedes uses plastic guides and clips to hold the window regulator wire in place, or " on trac". very common faulty part. You may have to replace the regulator and motor as an assembly. Use the estimator for your area on this site to find an estimate. -

Yo, Thanks Jason .... How do I know If I need a motor for the window? It sounds like it does work, but just not hooked up to regulator, you know? -
Answer 2
Jason is correct. Don't need to buy the motor, the regulator is a separate part, a new one cost about $ 150 and takes about 2.5 hours to replace it. Around $350 repair, depends on the shop's labor rate. Zee -
