    Hi guys, As a new member I'd first like to say thanks for helping me through my repairs of my new car simply by reading through lots of older posts. I did however get towed home earlier today unfortunately, the resultant failure seems to be broken gear linkages. My car is a 2002 ML 270 CDi manual with 166k miles on the clock and a full MB service history. I was hoping there was someone out there that could give me some tips on how to fix the linkages. Are they accessible from inside the cabin? Would the whole centre console need to be removed to gain access? Will I need to drop the gearbox? Are there any after Market parts available or is it MB only?
    Thanks in advance for your help...
    Steven
