    C200K 2001 vintage (203 model) stuck in Park. Told to remove trim around the auto change lever (which was easy), and then press the button exposed. Can only see a white button but pressing it does nothing as far as I can see. Still stuck in Park but fortunately car in my garage!
    Where is the button. I gather that it is not necessary to remove any other central console trim but is this true on this model?

    If its the same as the W209:

    Open up the centre armrest, inside theres a draw, remove that and push a pen through the hole, this will depress a clip allowing you to change the gear.

    A chopstick is a good alternative to a pen.

    Thanks but sadly the W203 is rather different.

    Just seen this snippy/sarky crack. Yes, it is meant to be helpful. When our ML500 had the same problem we found that a chopstick was the best tool as it was longer, stronger, and didn't ruin pens.

    As you're a newbie I'll forgive your manners on this occasion, however this is not really the way to win friends and influence people. Leastways not where I come from.
