Hi all, read though and tried to search the forum and google the best I could for a DIY pictorial window regulator replacement for the front windows with the airbags on w210 1997 E420. My mom's car just had the regulator go and I'm going to try and replace it myself to save her a few bucks.

Found out where to get all the parts ect, but does anyone know of a posting with a DIY pictorial of the front windows? Her front drivers window is the one that stopped working. There seems to be a bunch for the rear and it doesn't look too hard.

Thanks in advance!

Bump...never seemed to be answered.

I have the same problem with my 1996 E300D (W210)...the front drivers side regulator broke. I have purchased the new one, drilled out the rivets from the old & removed it. Now I am in the process of installing the new one. It appears as though the front and rear regulators are quite different unfortunately. It would be quite helpful to view a diagram, pictorial, video, or any other info on how to correctly install it. Has anyone found any useful info on this?

Thanks in advance!
