<br>Hello,<p> I am a professional Porsche and BMW technical and an independent<br>shop owner. I recently was very fortunate to purchase a 2001 CLK 55.<br>Unfortunately, it has several (build) problems on delivery, including a<br>windshield cracked by the dealer at PDI and an express window problem.<br>The window seems out of time. Express up causes the window to fully<br>extend then retract about 4 inches. If it was a BMW this would be caused<br>by either the window motor (HALL sensor, control unit loosing count) or<br>an anti-jam feature (window height too high). My dealer, like some<br>others, is horrible. They break more than they can fix on any given<br>visit. I would prefer to repair these defects myself.<p> I would like to know where I can purchase factory or good after<br>market wiring diagrams and workshop manuals for this car. BMW sells SOME<br>of this information through Kent-Moore and others. This information is<br>not available in printed form, but only on CD-ROM. I assume this is the<br>same for MB. Could you please give me a source for these materials.<p> I appreciate you help and advice. Please email a response or<br>telephone (808) 836-1675. Thank you.<p><br>Sincerely,<p>Scott Schulte, Ph.D.<br>President<br>German Auto Specialists<br>Honolulu, Hawaii<p><br>

I believe the problem with your windows can actually be fixed just by recalibrating.<p>I recall seeing this solution on mbworld.org or forum.clkmercedes.com (can't remember where):<p>Roll the windows down. roll them up without (or is it with?) the express. Do not let go of the button when it reaches the top, and wait 15 seconds or so. The windows will be recalibrated to the new position.<p>Try that out.
