Unhappy Stuck power window


I have a 1985 190E 2.3-16 with power windows. While driving today I tried to close my window after having opened it completely earlier. But the window wouldn't move when I pressed the button.

I have removed the door panel, and can't see anything wrong. I've measured the voltage (about 9.5V) to the motor as shown in the image below, and I can also hear a clicking sound from the motor when pressing the button.

My first question now is how can I manually close the window? I tried helping the motor by lifting the window and at the same time press the button, but I didn't want to damage anything so I didn't use much force. The window didn't move.

On the image below I've numbered some of the bars in the lifting mechanism. If some of the experts here can tell me if it's safe to manually lift the window by pushing on the right bars, I'd be very happy.
