Dear Wbain & Javimx5

I cant thank you enough for posting the photos. They were tremendous help. I showed rthem to a NON-MERC mechanic friend and directed the adjustment procedure he charged just USD 5/- only! and the car's perfect now shifting properly in all 1-2-3-4 and R

No I dont have hydrak infact its exactly what wbain your pics show. I drenched with WD40 all the linkages as well as blindly sprayed lots of it into the steering column shift rod.

Thanks so much for the great assistance without u I would be at the mercy of some sky rocketing expensive mercedes specialist.
