    Hello

    W210 rear window made horrible crunching sound and window would'nt go back up.

    Took door card off and the wire cable was pretty mangled. Managed to get it wound back round the pulleys and got window back up, but due to the cabling being kinked the window worked a few times before coming off puleys again. I have got the window up and disconnected the power to the window so that its secure.

    Does anyone know if the cables can be replaced or does the whole unit need to be replaced?

    Thanks

    You need a lifting mechanism like in the link below, the old mechanism is removed and your existing motor is transferred to the new mechanism, the whole unit is then riveted back on to the door.
    MERCEDES W210 '95~02 REAR LEFT WINDOW REGULATOR *NEW* on eBay (end time 23-Aug-10 11:13:00 BST)

    It’s not practical or reliable to repair the broken cable.
    A W202 is very similar to a W210… New Page 1

    You can secure the car for the time being by wedging the window shut with a length of wood inside the door.
    In its present state it could drop down while you are driving.

    Lots of Mercedes!
    be careful with chinese copied regulators... they arent well made and wont last as long as the proper OEM one.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The window is secure as the cables are wound back over the pulleys.

    Will check the link you posted later as I cant get Ebay in work, pesky bosses!

    Cheers
