    I can send you the instructions,,,, if it has lost a tooth most just build one up with weld and file to the correct profile

    As said they're different (front to back, sided and coupes/convertables are different to saloon/estate fronts) and it's usually wear on the first few teeth that stop 'em from working

    Doors in general (trim removal, glass, locks, seals etc)... http://www.w124performance.com/service/Index/Groups/72Doors.htm although as with all manuals/instructions it assumes you can still wind the window up and down...

    Like all jobs, when you do it for a living, you just get on and do it, when its for yourself, you look around and fiddle here and there, and a perfect time in this instance to check the door drain and deal with any rust that may be there
