W114 Repairing shift linkage

The previous owner of my 1972 250/8 automatic sedan with column shift has the shift linkage connected with zip ties.

Does anyone know what parts I need to fix this?

Thank you.

Thanks for the response agillot. How would I install that part? I see it replaces the one on the rod currently, but how does it attach to the thing that it is zip tied too currently?


EDIT: Is this what I need? 000 994 41 60

For me, "a plier" would indicate only half a tool. If we're talking about that implement that we all use several times a day, the one with two handles, two jaws and joined at a pivot point, it is a "pair of pliers." Sorry to be pedantic, but I'm jealous of our language the way it used to be. Would you cut a piece of paper with a scissor?

If one wanted to shorten his communication, it would be acceptable to elide the "pair of" and refer only to "pliers" or "scissors."

He won't pick on someone for providing a helpful piece of information because he didn't remember the "s" at the end of his statement.

I actually installed some of these clips using a tool from MercedesSource that a local friend purchased along with the shifter bushing tool. I was far more impressed by the simple
Tool for the installation of these clips. The L-shaped tool inserts into the u-shaped end of the clip and holds it in and also expands the clip so it can very easily be slid on. Then you turn the tool and it let's the clip collapse and you pull the tool out. The simplest inventions are the greatest! I may try to build my own if I don't find an inexpensive place to buy one. (I don't believe the PLIER tool will work on the manual trans bushings I need to replace in my 280sl, so I don't have any need to buy the PLIER tool.

Things are either correct or they are not - all of us can stand a little reminder from time to time.

Agillot: Nothing to be sorry about. the word "pliers" is one of those strange things in the English language that is fairly easy to misuse, even for those who have English as their first language. I can do a passable job of reading French, but wouldn't even try to string enough words together so as to post on a French language website. My comment was not meant as a negative, but simply a note on usage for those who care about our language.
