One of the power windows(rear passenger side) on my 82 380SEC won't go up or down. What should i look for first? Could it be a blown fuse?

Can you hear the motor when you press the window switch or do you get nothing?

If you hear the motor, do a search for "sliding jaw". My 2 cents.

The windows are fused in pairs; left front - right rear and right front - left rear. If you have one window out it isn't a fuse.

The most likely problem is the switch but if you can hear activity when pushing the button then you have a regulator problem. I'm not sure the lever foot problem that the sedans have is applicable to SECs but if its making sounds it will have to come apart to see.

If you hear the regulator moving up and down, it is possible that the plastic sliding jaw broke.
