Had a search and couldnt find anything.

Does anybody know the rivet size I would need to replace the drivers side window motor on a 208? Thanks :)

I think it is an odd size and people have used small bolts/nuts to avoid the arm striking the operating arm. If you use original size rivets you will also need a seriously strong rivet gun .

Nuts and bolts are fine but do use stud lock on them

Dont know the size, but I've used this company before, with good selection of larger rivets

And used a Stanley rivet gun. Which is excellent even for very large strong flight case rivets.

I believe that Mercedes use a steel rivet. I just did the regulator on a w210 and bought the Mercedes ones. They took some force to pop:)

I once riveted a door lock actuator to a defender door and after about a year the aluminium rivets failed through fatigue.

Bought a selection of stainless bolts, washers and nyloc nuts on Ebay very useful.
Button head keeps the projection down.

On my E class, it states 3/16 pop rivets, available from MB or screwfix, this could be common to all models.
