98 E320 rear power window cable

Hello All-

My rear passenger side window on my 98 E320 failed, so i removed the door panel and found that the cable was binding on the motor. The motor still works, so I unbound the cable and am attempting to rewind it on the motor.

I can't seem to figure out how the cable is wound on the motor - seems like it's missing a pulley somewhere.

Also, the motor has a rubber piece that guides the cable which looks in pretty bad shape. I may have to replace the motor, but will still need to rewind the cables.

Can anybody help with this? A picture or diagram would be helpful. Also, any hints on securing it in the up position temporarily would be nice until the parts come in.

The cable and pulley assembly can be replaced. They actually call it the "regulator" assembly. You can buy these from Fastlane or Parts shop (forgot which) for about $95. You will need to drill out four rivets so order those too. The procedure for replacing them can be found by doing a search on "window regulator".

The motor connects to the regulator via spline. Most of the time those gears are OK. If not, you will need the whole motor and regulator assembly.

I replaced mine a few weeks ago, it is a comon DIY task. You will need a heavy duty pop rivet gun, I bought mine at Ace hardware for about 15 bucks.

Good luck.
