Asked by Nov 22, 2013 at 03:44 PM about the 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 240 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I read here some posts regarding shifting problems on MB C200 - class. These appear to be AT only. Are there any manual gearbox/clutch shift problems associated with these cars?.  General years 2001-2006 models. Thanks.

There's 1 fault that although I wouldn't call it common, I have seen a few times. i'm guessing the gear lever is either solid and won't go in/come out of gear or is just flopping around and feels disconnected. The gear selector works on a 3 rod system which link the gear stick to the gear box. The rods connect at each end to a fork and are held in place by a simple clip. Climb under the car and look at where the 3 rods connect to the 3 gear lever forks, chances are your missing a clip and a rod has come loose.

Mercedes-Benz manual gearboxes are generally bomb proof so my previous answer sounds like your best bet. I'm not too familiar with the 6 speed gear lever but I'm guessing that gears 5,6 and reverse are all on the same side of the gear knob.
