1972 220d Shifter Bushing


I have 1972 220d with a manual transmission. Lately, it's been acting up. I'm having a VERY hard time putting it into first and second gears. I try to jam it, but that is absolutely futile, so what I end up having to do is wiggle the shifter around until it engages. After reading around the forums I believe that my problem lies with the shifter bushings.

So I was wondering, do you think that my bushing are bad as well? Also, what type/kind/brand does my car need? I know there are two different bushings, so should I replace both of them? Lastly, in order to repair it will I have to do it from the inside of the car (ie pull out the center console and replace the bushings) or is this something where I'll have to crawl under the car and fix it? Thanks, any help is appreciated.

You get bushing from the Mercedes dealer, or from several aftermarket suppliers. Go the the Russian web site and select your model from the W115 list. You will need the first 6 digits from the chassis number. Look at the transmission section.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
