Window Regulator Failure In Mercedes-Benz

by schearerswpadmin December 22, 2018

The Mercedes-Benz was designed with class in mind. However, not being able to roll your window down isn’t very classy. Although people spend good money to have a working car, there are certain obstacles that occur. One of those is window regulator failure. Now, you may think this isn’t a very important function, but you’ll realize how wrong that is the first time you try to go through a drive-thru or enjoy a nice breeze while driving. Bottom line is, nobody wants to see a broken Mercedes.

What Is The Window Regulator?
Not too long ago, drivers had to manually roll their windows up and down with a special lever. It worked great at the time, however, people needed something more advanced. Thus, the electric window regulator was introduced to luxury cars. Now, almost every car has this automatic function. The window regulator allows the driver to simply press a button and control whether or not the window goes up or now. Needless to say, it’s pretty important part of your car.

Why Did My Regulator Fail?
There may be specific issues that impact your Mercedes-Benz. Let’s consider a few specific problems that could result in window regulator failure.

Thermal Irregularities
When you start to experience issues with your window regulator, there may be a few things to consider. To begin, what is the climate like in your area? If your older vehicle is in sub-32-degree weather on a consistent basis, this may impact the regulator. Often times, this important piece may become stuck or frozen in these environments.
How to Fix This: While you can’t change the weather, you can take precautionary steps towards avoiding this problem. Keep your car covered as much as possible. If you know your car will be sitting for a while, start your car and let it run for a bit. This will help this piece to get the activity it needs to not freeze. Thermal regulation can preserve the life of your car in all forms.

Overheated Motors
Your car windows open and close based on specialized motors. If those motors experience any form of temperature malfunctions, it can greatly impact how your windows operate. Especially when heat is involved. When your motors are overheated, it can impact how your windows work. Often times, this will make the motor give out completely.
How to Fix This: It’s best to monitor your vehicle’s temperature on a regular basis. This will keep you informed of any potential changes in your car’s health. When you have your vehicle serviced, have your mechanic check your temperature levels. Being in the know will help you avoid a costly repair.

Separated Cables
Unfortunately, the Mercedes will often experience detachment issues in its lifetime. In order for your windows to roll up and down, there are special cables that have to be attached. If they come apart for some reason, you will experience issues with the window function. Cable detachment is one of the primary reasons for window issues. Often times, there is an underlying issue with your cable pulley system that makes this issue occur.
How to Fix This: If you are experienced with working on cars, you can try to reattach your cables yourself. Although this may sound easy, you may make a mistake that could result in further damage. Instead of taking that risk, why not let a professional Mercedes mechanic perform this task for you? This will ensure that your repair is done correctly and keep your car free from any possible damage.

A professional mechanic can diagnose any potential issues and provide you with the necessary plan of action.

what people say about us

Excellent & timely service – keep up the great job!! =D

Excellent service. Work done on time as promised.

Just got back from having a turn signal bulb replaced… For $133… Bulb is available for $7.98 online, but the intensive training required to unscrew the old bulb and screw in the new one must have been very costly indeed. Was looking for a new place to go for service on my GTI. Got a postcard saying “you don’t have to go to the dealer” As horrible as the dealer is, I very certainly would have been much better off. Oh, and they charged me $80.00 for the bulb! I said that’s some real markup on that and they told me it was 65% markup as they bought it for $25.00… Unbelievable.

You always take good care of my daughters car. Fast reliable and honest service.

Very Professional and Through in their Work. They have my Trust in their recommendations.

Always professional. I’m a 7 year customer. I’ve had several vehicles serviced here and I’ve never had to worry that the work wasn’t done properly.

You are always very helpful to me. Had my car ready on time , the time I said needed it. No loaner cars available but so good of Rayanne and Christie to get me back and forth. Thank you so much.

Thank you for polite and professional service!

Work nicely done at a reasonable price – made recommendations for (necessary!) additional work I hadn’t considered. Left one wire disconnected, but that was promptly and properly corrected. Thanks!

Service at Schearers is always meticulous and professional. The work for which I brought my car in was done well, and an inspection of potential future problems was also undertaken, enabling me to plan for future maintenance to keep my car running smoothly. I am satisfied, as always, with the quality of work and the professionalism of everyone I encountered at Schearers.

Excellent service as usual. Work was done in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. I really like the loaner car arrangement. Mike was very nice to schedule service on the same day and get the necessary parts quickly. Samantha provided a coupon from the internet. Thanks

Friendly service and fair pricing.

Very personable owner/ family. Made us feel comfortable. Explained everything that was necessary for our car upkeep. Prices better than other foreign car dealerships. Car was completed in a timely manner. Will recommend to friends. Thank you

I wish I had found them earlier! Great company and very talented group of mechanics, specializing in German cars. They do excellent work and you’ll save a lot of money over the dealer.

Great service. I would recommend this service center to every one. Very professional and courteous. Always get the job done right.

Polite, helpful staff and professional service always!

Great experience! From the first call I made and spoke with Kristy to Mike walking me through and explaining what he was going to do. Mike also did an evaluation and let me know what to expect regarding services my car will need in the future. Exceptional customer service from beginning to end, including Samantha taking my payment. I told Mike, I am a customer for life! Well done Scherrers!! Jim Rowlands

The headlight lens cleaning was great. Thanks for suggesting.

Tom and the team deliver again! There is a reason we come back for our fleet of cars, excellent, trustworthy service with a personal touch. Keep up the great work.

Exceptional service

5 star rating absolutely!

Fine service.

Great Professional service!! I originaly contacted Schearer’s to get an estimate for my bmw M3 oil pan replacement because the threads were stripped. Tom recommended Timesert thread repair kit instead. They saved me thousands of dollars and fixed the issue with just couple of hundreds. All the other associates(Mike & Samantha) are also knowledgeable and great customer service. They earned my trust!!

Great service!

Great service and honest assessment of required work and at a competitive price

Very detailed service department. They took the time to call me several times about the work recommended for my car. Their follow-up is very good as they let me know the progress of the extensive service work required every step of the way.

Car runs like a top!

The owner is a super nice guy. He is very helpful and makes sure his customers understand what is being done to their car. Very nice service people as well. Thanks for all of your help

Zerin always takes care of us and he is always so sweet. The loaner car is the most convenient thing ever. Thank you for your services

Shearer’s yet again provided exceptional service! I am always informed of any maintenance requirements, reasons for, and associated costs before any actions are taken. They offered flexibility for returning home while the work was done in terms of a loaner car or ride. Everyone with whom I spoke was knowledgeable, courteous, and supportive. I highly recommend Shearer’s to service your car!

Always very nice and accommodating being that I live in Vermont. Will definitely have them maintain my sons car for the next 2 years while he attends school in PA.

Incredible service at a great price. I totally trust the Schearer’s Team!

Excellent service, easy to schedule an appointment, and love the “loaner” option!
