Drivers Side Door Windows (both of them) Problem

2766 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  keyhole
Just noticed last night, that both windows on the driver's side lower themselves slightly when I open the driver's door, which I believe is intentional and designed to reduce wear on the seals when opening and closing the doors. However, now neither window is going back up when the door is closed, not even when I lock the car.

Is this a common problem?

Is it an easy fix I can take care of on the driveway, or is MB Sugar Land going to get another handful of my Ben Franklins to put this right? Monsoon season is nearly upon us down here in Houston, and I really don't want to come back to wet seats day in day out.

Thanks guys

Will try pulling the fuses and resetting and will get back to you.
Thanks guys.

I tried raising the windows and holding the buttons in the "up" position for about 10 secs. It cured the problem and I didn't need to pull the fuses first.
MB have 'engineered the sh1t' out of the feature, as my old boss would say. :)
Old adage:

Most people say "if it ain't broke, don't mend it". Mechanical engineers, like me, however, tend to subconsciously do, if not openly say, "if it ain't broke, re-engineer / "improve" it until it is".:grin
