Unhappy 2005 SLK window problem

Hi All, Please help.

I have a newish shape SLK200 and I am experiencing driver window problems, when I open the door the window drops (as to be expected) but it drops considerably more than I would of expected 60-70mm when should only drop about 5-10mm. when I close the door, the window doesnt raise automatically like it should to effect a seal, I have to get out, get in the passenger seat and close from the inside and get out the pass side, which is a pain in the rear!!!

Also when operating the window from inside whilst driving the one touch close doesnt work, I have to hold the button down until it closes.

If I wind the window up with the door open, you can hear the window hitting something metallic, but dont know what?! Possibly a sensor, this problem is intermittant, it does this for a few days then sorts itself out for a month or so?!?! what the heck is going on?

Think im going to take the door panel off and clean the sensors inside....If I can find them!

Any help would be appreciated
