1984 Mercedes 300SD wont go into PARK!
Hi, I am a new member and I have had a 1984 Mercedes 300SD automatic for about 10 months. Its a great car but lately it has intermittently refused to go from reverse to park. The problem got worse this weekend so I loosened the linkage at the transmission and found it will go into park with no problem with the linkage off. The shifter still refuses to budge past reverse. It looks to me like I need to remove the center console to inspect what is going on. I have removed quite a bit of interior and still cant see how to remove the console. Do I need to take out the dashboard? I cant see where to begin. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
