Q: Why can I not procure the shift control mechanism within the transmission on 2007 Mercedes-Benz ML350 4MATIC

The "independent" vehicle service and repair firm I employ has ascertained that a shift control device, within the transmission, is malfunctioning. This is the "good news" as apparently only Mercedes dealers may procure this device, classified as a TRP, (Theft Related Part). In fact owners are not permitted to purchase the device. How is this not a restraint of trade matter?
