Hi, its my first time in the forum. The reason I am here is that my 2003 CLK240 refused to let me get the Smar Key out of it after I set the gear to "P" and turned the ignition off as usual.
I was able to restart it again and took it to a mechanic who told me there is a problem with the gear handle. Personally, he seemed clueless to me, but after a number of trials, he got the key out of the ignition.
He told me the only way now is to hit the stick gently to the left after moving it to "P".
Any ideas what that might be? I have just had the car for 2 months and got the tranny oil check at MB dealership, they said it was ok.
