Post W114 Starter Inhibitor Switch

Hello there,

I have a 1972 250 (W114) and appear to be having problems with the Stater Inhibitor Switch. If possible, would you be so kind as to assist me in with the following;

1) Can I remove and the Starter Inhibitor Switch from the transmission without having to remove the whole transmission form the car?

2) Is it possible to repair the Starter Inhibitor Switch? if so, how would I do this?

I am confident that my diagnosis for the fault is correct, in that the Merc won't start as the Switch will not engage when in P or N. When I wiggle the switch (whilst underneath the car) into various positions, I manage to get the inhibitor switch to engage correctly, thus am then able to start the car.

Your help would be kindly appreciated

Thank you
