Windows off the track.....

Hey, I'm sure many of you have had this problem before. 3 out of the 4 windows on my 1989 300SEL have gone off track, one broke a part on the way down, and the others just plane fell off? I don't know, I just took it in to the shop and had to peel the money out. Thing is, since this occurs so often, has anyone seen a guide to fixing it or could write one if it is not to complicated? Also currently our 91 Lincoln Towncar's front driverside window is off the track and we had to patch it with tape to save it from the rain because we just had to pay a pretty penny to get the mercedes sunroof fixed which was also off track, what do you know Anyone know the solution to the mercedes or the lincoln? or know a forum for linolns? I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks guys! (or girls)

What do you mean by off the track? The common window failure in these cars is the motorized arm disengaging from the window such that the window is free to move up and down. But it's still in its track.

There's lots of information on diagnosing and fixing window problems that you'll find using the search tool. "Sliding jaw" are some key words to try.

It's unfortunate that you had to shell out $$$$ to have someone fix it for you, because for most MB models, it's a relatively inexpensive and simple fix, and can be done in an hour's time.

Even if you had to replace entire power window assemblies, you are only out about $150-$200 max.

In many cases, there is a $2 part that remedies the problem!!!
