Help needed - replacing gear shifter housing.

Post by zohar » Sat 18 Mar, 2017 2:13 am

Hello,
I bought the older chrome auto shifter housing and want to swap for my 1974 black plastic version this weekend.

Any pointers on how to remove the existing housing / gear lever?

Thanks.
Z

Can all be done from above. Quite easy, but first question is do you have factory A/C or not?

Looks great. In keeping with all Mercedes, they need some BLING!
