    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?

    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.
