My buddy got a 1985 300D turbodiesel so I'll be posting on this forum too.

The drivers side rear seat window goes up and down, not very smoothly with a machine gun like sound. When at the top it continues to make that same sound.

So what is broken and needs to be fixed or replaced?

Just recently noticed the same sound on my car. Tap Tap Tap, right as it reaches the top. Window operates smoothly though.

1. Remove the door panel:

-door opening handle (the chrome part)
pull the black plastic part out and you find one screw

-door handle
two screws at bottom and one under the chrome part at top

-Electric window button (rear doors)
pull it out and disconnect the wires

-carefully pull the panel from left, right and bottom edges and then lift it up

Under there you'll find some gears and a part that looks a like a saw... Well, my english is not too good for explaining it - here's a picture:

That should do it. Hope you understand what I mean. [:I]

Thank you all for your responses.

I'm going to tell my buddy not to use that window for the time being. I ordered a lot of stuff for the car on Friday and that will keep me busy for a while.
