Question '94 C280

I bought this 1994 C280 nearly 2 years ago... And as it goes with purchasing a used car and nearly paid off, things are starting to break.

My windshield wiper stopped in mid turn, is easily movable and I believe just striped. The motor still works.

The drivers side door glass is stuck nearly all the way down. It had "froze up" and slide down more and more. I bought a new motor for that at 95.00 but need advise on how to correctly remove the door panel to make the repair. I don't see any screws to loosen and assume that is is all push pin?

Also, apparently have a wiring problem in the dash... I might have hit the dash and had a formerly "broken" light come on.

Any advise on how to handle these repairs myself? I don't want to pay dealer prices and most other mechanics seem "afraid" to do any work.

Thanks in advance,

Instead of wasting money on spending a purchased car you could invested some more money and have bought a brand new car. Anyways got to the local body shop and get it repaired.
