Help please!

Hi I've recently bought a Mercedes ml 320. I just wondered if anyone could tell me how I select the manual gears??

What year?

When you are in "drive", you can move the gear selector to the right or left to shift-unless you have an early model.

It's '99 - it won't let me move down into the gears, it's like it's stuck?!

Is there a + and - sign on either side of "D" on the gear selector? My 98 did not have this and it was not possible to manually shift through the gears.

Are you saying that the shift stick will not move out of P?

Try resting your foot on the brake, and gently move the stick to the right & downwards. That should work,
