Ok...my gearshift lever came away from the steering column on my 2006 ML500. Anyone know how I can shift the car into reverse and then drive to get it over to my mechanic. The wires are still attached to the dangling lever so I can get it into park, but not into reverse or drive. Called my mechanic who is ordering a new switch. He said I might be able to get the trans to shift into reverse or drive if I insert a small screwdriver into the hole where the switch wires are hanging from. Any ideas out there?
