Rear Windows . . . a large cracking sound and now they won't go up . . .
My Dad is having a problem with the rear right-hand-side window in his '93 300SE. I was rolling down the window the other day when I heard a pretty loud "crack" sound. I tried to roll the window back up, but it wouldn't budge, so I used my hands to push it up manually. Even using my hands, I can't get it to go all of the way up. There is still about a half-inch opening at the top of the window.
I know that there are problems with the rear window regulators in this car, but I don't think that is my problem due to the loud cracking sound, and due to the fact that I can't even push the window up all the way.
Any suggestions? Do you think that the window came off of it's track? If so, is it a real PIA to get the door skin off to fix the problem?
Thanks for the help!
