At first there was just a hesitation then, one day (raining cats and dogs kind of day, of course!) it failed completely.
just got this 2001 ML, previous owner did not tell me that theres a problem on the master switch. I Did called the dealer gave me $279 for the parts. got them and change, now works better.
Actually a 1998, for a few months, window would be difficult to get back up but would always go after messing around with it. Now it is totally unresponsive
