help, no windows!!!

Alright guys, all of a sudden I lost power to the front passenger side window motor, and the back drivers side motor all at once. They worked one day, and the next neither did. Got in the car today, and I lost the corresponding two. So now I have no power windows. Is there a fuse in there somewhere that blew? The window motors worked fine before this. I need your guys' expertise. Come on, dazzle me. 1981 300d non turbo, 170,000mi. automatic

very common.
pull your fuse panel, and look at the sheet, it will tell you which fuses.
also, the fuses get stressed, because the window tracks get old and sticky.
pull the panel and clean and realign the rails and regulators and then regrease them. amazing how much faster the windows are when properly maintained.

One fuse powers left front and r/rear. One more fuse powers the other two. Replace those fuses with copper element type regardless of how they look.

Get as similar metal as the fuse holder as you can. As pricey as they are, (I'm afraid there are too many as's in this paragraph, sir!) I've got a set for each car from http://**************.com
