I don't have specific experience doing this with the Mercedes, but I have done it with other cars and wanted to give a general tip: Power window circuits often have a thermal breaker in-line that will cut power when the draw of the window motor gets too high (aka; when the window reaches the end of travel in either direction and the motor is pushing hard against the non-moving window). When you apply voltage directly to the motor wiring harness at or near the door, there's a chance you're bypassing the thermal breaker in the circuit. This means you have a chance to overheat the wires to the motor or the windings inside the motor.
If you're careful, it's not much of a concern; connect the wire to voltage briefly and be sure to disconnect it immediately as soon as the window is down, and you're good to go. Also, if the motor is of the type where the breaker is built-in to the motor itself, then you're covered. Someone else here more knowledgeable about the specific part would have to comment on that though.
