2003 S430 with gear shift issue

Hey everyone, I have a 2003 S430 with a gear shift that can be very difficult to get out of park. I am aware of the articles posted regarding the issue of the plastic piece causing the issue. my question is does anyone know anybody in the Houston, Tx area who does this type of repair work? Already spoke with MB dealership and they want to replace the entire gear shift unit for at minimum $1000.00. any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
