I did a search on replacing a rear window sliding jaw (why is it called a jaw?) on a W126. I couldn't find anything more specific than 'remove the regulator.'

Okay, I'm to that point. It appears that I have to release the wiring connector from the motor. I can't get it to budge. Does is slide up along the motor axis or radially away from the motor?

On the subject, the glass slides smoothly up and down the track; no binding, no tilting. But there is a bit of drag. It feels as though I can drive over railroad ties without fear of the window sliding down even with the regulator out. Is this as tight as it should be? Is this why the old jaw broke? What clown thought plastic is the way to go?

Never mind

For future reference, it's easier to detach the motor from the regulator, than the wires from the motor (might be soldered, but that cap's on there good so I'll never know). I removed 2 Torx head screws holding the motor to the angle drive, then 3 bolts holding the angle drive to the regulator. It might have been possible to detach the angle drive with the motor attached to it.

If nonUS cars don't have a side impact beam, it might be possible to pull the regulator with the motor attached.

*WARNING* I detached the motor with the regulator in the window down position. Logic would dictate that you don't mess with a compressed spring. Logic was not dictating to me today.
