If I understand you correctly, your windows are rolling up too far. That was the case on our 1999 SLK. On ours, it was the "L" shaped stop that is glued to the bottom of the glass. To find it you must remove the door panel. Once that is off, you get access to the area by removing the large speaker. There should be 2 of the "L" stops glued to the window. They are in the same spot towards the front of the window. One is on the inside of the glass and the other on the outside. With the window down you should be able to see (and feel) them. If they are not both there, feel around on inside if the bottom of the door for the one that has fallen off. I roughed up the glass a little bit with a dremel tool, cleaned the old glue off the "L" bracket, applied some epoxy, then clamped it in place to dry.
Once both of the brackets are in place, the stop can be adjusted. The "L" brackets hit the stop, which is held in place by a nut. With the door panel off, you can see this a few inches below the top of the door. I believe that the nut uses a 10mm socket. You will see that the stop assembly can moved up or down to determine the stopping point of the window.
