Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** you can hear the window motor in the door working when you operate the switch the problem will be a faulty window lifter. The Mercedes uses a cable driven window lifter. It is very common for the cable to come off and cause this problem. The lifter cannot be repaired it will need to be replaced. Estimated cost is $167 for the part and about 2 hours labor to replace the lifter.
