Smile LDAW: C230 getting stuck in P, D & R

Recently, my 2007 C230 has been getting stuck in P/R/D. Just getting out of the garage is a chore. More often than not, I have to put the parking bake on, turn off the car and then if I'm lucky, I can put it in park. If not, I struggle with it when I get back in the car. I have tried shifting gently, pushing down and ultimately brute force, which works occasionally. This has happened in each gear. Please help!

This is the 722.9 transmission and your shifter, if not damaged will need to be re-programed using SDS, take the car to a specialist if possible, the dealers will be expensive for this job.
