E280 Avantegarde Estate cdi 2006 Facelift
Hi all,

This is a bit unusual. Sometimes my gear selector will not allow me to return from Drive or Neutral back to Reverse or Park. To move the selector, I release the foot brake and I am able to return to R or PARK. The intermittent problems are always the worst!

I have replaced the brake light switch; thought the problem had gone away but alas no! It is the intermittent nature that causes much scratching of head! Selector Solenoid?

Anybody got any ideas?

The problem is common to E and C classes, the selector lever is starting to fail, back ordered from Germany as well at the moment.....
