Hi, my name is Marty. for this problem you are going to need to remove the passenger side door panel to check the vacuum element in the door and also the linkage. What often happens on the SL is the linkage comes loose and even though the vacuum element is working it does not pull the linkage.If the rest of the system is working the problem should be confined to a fault in the passenger door. Click here for instructions to remove the door lining. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
