    Does any 163 ML owners know how to fix a sloppy/loose feel to the gear lever. I haven't taken it out to check yet but I suspect there's a bush of some sort that's worn out (car has 123K on it).

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Where the linkage connects there is a tiny bush that splits apart, quite a common occourance, you will need to get under the car to see/repair it.

    Ah excellent. Thank you. :thumb:

    I think I need to sort out a workshop manual for the future.
