its a known common problem that I have posted on many times.

you need an mb commercial dealer (they normally have the bits on the shelf.... a car dealer will need to order)

the part you want is the "reverse gear selector repair kit" and quote the vin to check it.

cost around £23 (the last one I got in december) and its a 20 minute job.

open the bonnet, on top of the gearbox is a "cage" onto which the gear cables fit.

"pop" the cables off (they push fit on nipples) with a large screwdriver..... keep them seperate and easy to identify.

undo the 2 bolts that hold the cage down (one is hidden at back on top) and remove cage

put on new cage and tighten bolts (use loctite screwlock)... pop cables back on...........
