The part

This aftermarket regulator is fine for the price under $35:

MERCEDES BENZ WINDOW REGULATOR E-CLASS 96-03 W/O MTR RR - eBay (item 310190021227 end time Dec-15-10 15:30:50 PST)

The genuine OEM regulator (and there are some sellers/sites selling the aftermarket as a "German made" part, when the aftermarket is made in China) is like $105:

Your Parts Search Returned 4 Part(s)

See the DIY on the process, it's quite straighforward, however I personally recommend (3) things:

nylon panel pry bar tool set $6-$8 Harbor Freight
7/32" drill bit for drilling out the old rivets (not bigger or smaller)
$9-$10 aluminum rivet gun set - Harbor Freight

In case you break any panel nylon fasteners, repacements are like $3 each at the dealer and normally are a stocked item.

Keep the beat !

fabbrisd1-Thanks for the info. Just ordered a left and right rear regulator from an aftermarket co, $43 ea including rivots. If they work saved me over $100.

Topspn, welcome. Please click user cp and edit details to add your vehicle and location to your profile, it's often useful info when you're seeking assistance.

You could have saved even more by just buying the "green thing" that is documented in the W210 sedan (non-AMG) forum stickies. It's the slide that holds the two cable ends and most often fails on the regulators. A bit more work than just replacing the regulator, though you don't have to swap the motor, so it balances out.

Beware one thing on the cheapy regulators: some have poor spot welds that will actually fail in use. Then you end up having to tear everything apart and drill the regulator arm to rivet it back together.

Good luck.
