Power window problem on E320

My right rear power window failed this morning. The window went down part way and stopped. I heard gears grinding, it sounds bad. I think the gears are powder now.

I looked at the door strap removal procedure in the DIY section and am wondering if my door comes apart in a similar way. I don't remember if I have side airbags back there, but are there any tricks to removing the panel and getting to the motor and gears? I think the motor is fine, are replacement gears available?

I'm embarrassed to ask this: where is my battery located?

I don't like prying on things without knowing what I'm doing. Thanks for your help.

98' E320 4Matic

Your battery is under the back seat on the right side. About the window not working, if you heard a grinding type noise you will need a new window regulator. The rear window regulators are of the cable type and the motor is part of the regulator.

Thanks,

I've checked Fastlane and Benz-Bin, but neither carries these. Is this a dealer only part? Any other suggestions for sources for this part?

How abour the R&R of this part. Are there any things to watch for when removing the door panels?

just replaced my window regulator today.

i had the same problem with my 96e320. the right rear window was making grinding sound when i try to make it go up / down. window does not move. but i can push it up and down manually. I followed some of the instructions from this site and got it fix today. Parts you will need are one heavy duty rivet tool, got mine from harbor tool frieght ($13 on sale), one window regulator, 4 rivets, and a drill. Just do a search on this site "window regulator", u will find all the information you need.
