This is the gear linkages. It is a cable operated system to allow the gear lever to be dash mounted.

They are a common fault. The parts are about £65 from Mercedes (dealer only part) and unless you know what you are doing you can expect about 2 - 3 hours labour charge, though there are no special tools involved.

They average about 60,000 miles, though the replacements tend to be better.

Code errors


this is the many problems with Merc Benz. These guys have their own Coding system so you have to return to them to get it fixed. They sell you the car but they have many 'gotchas' so you are stuck going to them for maintenance. It should be against the law.
try to find a Merc Benz Forum that may know what those codes mean

Extended cab. How do I uncross gears?


if you are stuck in gear it is not a basic rebuild but a bad rebuild
because of the design of the gear selection process , it is impossible to have 2 gears selected together as one selector shaft will not move unless another selector shaft is in the correct position ( neutral ) to allow the detente balls to move out of the way so the next selector shaft can move
it is possible that the gear stick is not in the correct position when it was installed back onto the top of the box and one gear was selected and the end of the lever came out of the selector slot or all the selectors were not in the neutral position and so the end of the lever went behind a selector rail
pull the gear lever turret of the top of the box, move the selector rails until they all line up as a slot across all of them , then put the gear lever end back in that neutral slot

My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in


Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

Locked Ignition but steering wheel free


Push gear selector up past park and it should loosen up, or press hard on the brake pedal. Shifter up past park usually loosens it up. Common GM problem.
