Mercedes 280se 4.5 1972 passenger window

Hello. Can anyone tell me how I can fix my front passenger side window? It goes up all the way and then driving after a couple of very light bumps in the road the window slips down about 1 cm leaving a small gap of open air. I can then push the switch and it goes up but then eventually falls again. Do I need to replace the whole regulator or just open up the panel (which I haven't done yet) and tighten something up.

Thanks for your help.

You may have a worn gear... Have you taken the door panel off and looked inside it yet?

Pot metal gears are gone

The gears are stripped out. Find a junker and get a better one. I think the back will fit the front on the same side.
