Post 2006 C230 Shifter Knob

Lost in Paradise..........

New to the club! How do you remove the shifter knob from a 2006 C230 Sport Automatic.? I have been researching this for some time now and have not found the correct year related instructions or one that works anyway...

Anyone out there know?

I don't know if the C230 has the same knob as my W220, but if there is a chrome collar at the bottom of the knob (closest to the console) you just turn that know a part turn clockwise (as you look down on the knob) and that unlocks the knob. It then just lifts off the shifter (doesn't unscrew). To reinstall it, you push the knob back down on the shifter and turn the collar anti-clockwise until it locks.

Thanks buddy! I actually found a site that has photos at "formymercedes.com" I hope it helps others. The photos help tremendously however, one does need to be ready to make adjustments for a custom knob.

Take a peak at the site! Good stuff there as well.
