ML320 Transmission Problems

I just changed all my mounts on my 2000 ml320 (motor and transmission). The car was working perfectly for about an hour, but then i tried to put my transmission in Drive, the Gear Lever would be half an inch from the Drive Position but it would still be in the Drive Gear. The car still drives fine but i can't use the manual shifting controls. I will post a picture so it will be more clear.
Thanks

As you can see, the Transmission is in Drive but it is half an inch from the original spot.

Did you do the tranny mount first?. Maybe you bent something on the mount or underneath if you did it in that order. Shift lock cable?.

There were a few posts on here from people who warn to keep the truck in neutral when doing the engine mounts and lifting the engine, otherwise you can supposedly bend or break some sort of link. I put mine in neutral to be on the safe side. Hope that didnt happen to you.

Go underneath the truck and locate the shifter rod #26 where it attaches to the shifter arm and see that the bushing #6 is in place inside the shifter arm.

If it is , remove the rod from the shifter arm and see if the problem remains. If the problem remains you will have to bend the the shifter arm back into place.

If everything is in order at the shifter, then you will have to adjust the shifter rod at the transmission.
