tools required: spanner (10mm i think) and Phillips screwdriver

remove the plastic covering of the door locking mechanism remove the plastic cover of the door armrest (at the top) to reveal a bolt. Undo this bolt.The whole door facia/panel will lift up a bit although the door handle although the door handle mechanism is still attached. This can then be unhooked more easily.

The motor is held on by 3/4 nuts (and tension). undo all these and push the motor mechanism and sliders back into the door frame. (support the glass carefully at this point)

the motor is attached to the frame by sliders and can be separated relatively easily.

refitting is the reverse

Why would the drivers master window control switch and the window switch behind the drivers side not work on a 1990 Toyota Camry?

The drivers window switch on the master switch energizes a solenoid for the express down feature of the drivers window. The solenoid deenergizes when the window bottoms out causing the thermal overload in the window motor to open. A spring in the solenoid is supposed to break the open circuit and provide power to the close circuit when deenergized. Sometimes the spring gets weak or the solenoid plunger is sticky preventing powering the close circuit. Removing the door panel and diaassembling the master switch is not a DIY. I have had success banging on the arm rest adjacent to the master switch to get the spring to make the close circuit. My guess is the rear window switch gets its power from the same movable contact as the drivers window switch.

What fuse do you have to replace to get the passenger side window in your 88 Mercedes 300e to work again?

It has no specific fuse. Check the switch, first, since it's the first thing to go. You can remove the switch panel and swap wiring harnesses with the back window. If that switch moves the window up and down, order a new switch from performanceproducts.com. If it still doesn't work, open the door panel and check to see if you're getting electricity to the door window motor. If you are, then you'll have to replace the motor.

How do you repair a switch on the drivers side window that won't roll down The other windows work perfectly?

If you're sure it's the switch, you'll have to replace the whole switch module. Some people have had limited success by taking it apart and cleaning it.

Here's a link that shows how to replace one. http://free-auto-repair-advice.blogspot.com/2007/10/replace-power-window-motor-regulator.html
