Question about Mercedes-Benz Cars & Trucks
Disclaimer - beware - these little cars are very complex and easy to destroy computers.
1st option: No details re history so will assume it is in limp mode only driving in 2nd or reverse?
If so check fluid level in gearbox when hot -run for 20 minutes in driveway should do the trick. Find sealed filler hose and insert aftermarket dipstick. (There are youtube videos on how to make DIY one out of curtain spring wire) If level alright it will be valve body grunge and needs expert auto to clean. Otherwise add EXACTLY 500ml of synthetic fluid from Mercedes. try operating after heating gearbox as before. If good get auto serviced.
2nd option: Operate emergency Park release if Gear change not moving. remove gear change module cover and check connections in circuit board.
Very good website called Lofty's A160 page for DIYER's

It sounds like the handle has become disconnected from the mechanism. You will have to remove the inner door panel and reattch. It is not a complicated or difficult job but if you get a professional it could cost upwards of $100.

I had the same problem on my 2002 Escape. Ended up taking it to the dealer and they replaced the Lift Gate Lock Actuator - cost us about $310 (parts and labor). Part #1C3F-18C815-AB
