1st thing is go to mb and get a "reverse gear repair kit" its a metal "cage" on top of the gearbox... the 2 shift cables come through the bulkhead and clip onto it.

its a common problem and termed a problem with 1st and reverse..... wrong terminology, its a problem with selecting ANY gear and gets so bad that the lever moves around and NO gear can be selected..... I would recommend changing it, to ALL purchasers of a second hand vito

its about £24 from mb and is ordered to fit your VIN number (under flap between door and front seat)

1st time I did one, took about 20minutes from opening bonnet to driving off.... 1 socket or spanner and a big screwdriver to lever the cables off
