    Greetings,

    My W210 estate E200 Kompressor (2000 model) has recently developed a rattling at the gear selector at the consol. It became apparent recently when I was driving on a rough road surface.

    Also it sounds a bit loose when I change from park to drive when standing.

    Anybody know / offer input please?

    Greatly appreciated

    Have a great festive season :D

    Thanks Star,

    Do you access that through the consol at the gear selector or is that under the car on the rod that goes to the transmission / box ?

    many thanks

    Thanks, for that - that helps a lot. Is this a fairly simple job ? Does the mechanism come up from the top (inside the cockpit) on best to access from underneath the car ? many thanks for all your great input.
