    I have a 94 SL with power windows. The front windows go 1/2 way down and
    then stop. They won't raise or lower. Any suggestions other that relacing
    the motor and/or regulators? Just hoping its something I'm overlooking

    First you have to be sure that the felt window tracks are properly
    lubricated so the windows take minimum effort to operate. Too much drag
    will cause the motor to overheat and kick out.

    I have always used spray silicone. Generally the motor will quit if
    it gets hot due to overload, age, and/or both.

    If they work again after waiting a while, I would say the window motors
    need replaced.

    Good Luck, James
