Mercedes-Benz 300TE Shifter Lever Bushings May Break Causing Loose Feel/Noise

(5 reports)

The bushings for the shifter lever wear out to the point where they break and fall out. This causes excessive movement (loose feel) in the shifter lever and a clanging-type noise when changing gears.

Shift bushings loose, cheap repair, $25.00 labor and $4.00 each X two. Now as new. -
