How do I attach the power window regulator to the window?

(1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL)
I have a 1986 420 SEL and had to replace the window. The plastic clip which is used to attach the window rotor to the actual glass was broken and I went to the dealership and got a new one. How do I attach the plastic clip to the rotor and window glass?

You should never ever have to cut anything on these cars! Don't cut wires! Ever!

If you're talking about the plastic slider that runs back and forth in the metal channel at the bottom of the window, I have done this repair a number of times. I posted a short article, with pictures, on a Benz forum:

Essentially, you have to drill or grind out the stud that held in the plastic and replace the slider. You can buy one from Mercedes or an aftermarket dealer, or you can make your own from simple parts you can find at Home Depot.
