I have 86 560SL and need to find transmission shifter rod part# 107 260 3333. These are currently NLA from MB dealerships. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Mike

Well you should be looking in the for sale forum. Shouldn't be hard to find. But whats wrong with the one you have.

I just restored one. Very difficult to get apart but wire brush the exposed threads chase the thread down as far as you can with a 10mm x1.5mm die and blow off debris, Soak repeatedly in penetrating oil for a month. Hold the pivot fitting in a vice lightly and remove the nut first. Then re-chase the thread down to the pivot fitting and blow away all debris. Clap the rod into the vice and remove the pivot fitting.

The penetrating oil for a month is the hard part.

My issue is that a NON Mercedes mechanic removed the transmission and bent the rod severely. Just a FYI, Adsit has approx. 20 R107's that they correctly part out. They had the rod and were very helpful on the phone. Quick shipping as well. My issue is solved. Thanks for the tip. Mike
