The shift cover can only be replaced, or you can try a little well placed tape on the broken clip to help hold it in. Common problem. But you will need that cover loose anyway to remove the ashtray. Pull the shift cover up around the shifter, taking care to take the connectors loose. Now use your fingers to reach under the front edge of the wood trim/or metal trim depending on package and pull up to take out from around shifter. Also, go ahead and pop the cupholder up. In the bottom of the compartment is a rubber cushion. You need a long hook or long pliers to grab that rubber and pull it up out ot the compartment. With that removed, grab the cupholder and pull up slightly until you feel it release. Then twist the whole assembly clockwise to remove. This will give you all the access you need to the ashtray compartment.

Vehicle will not come out of park. vehicle has power , but will not come out of park. all wheel drive

common problem on the s-class where the shifter gets stuck in park. The shifter release solenoid is usually the case of this problem which is fixed by replacing the shifter assembly as a complete unit. On a few occasions the stop lamp switch can be the cause of this issue but 9 out of 10 times its the shifter assembly that needs to be replaced.

The manual gear shift will not move to reverse it is stuck in park? Mercedes Benz 2002 s class 500.... It is stuck in Park

Some times you could get them out of park by pounding on the top of the shifter while moving it out of park at the same time. You need a new shifter assembly. If it won't come out of park, they can drag it onto a flatbed.
