Parking Pawl Linkage
« on: 13 October 2019, 06:07 PM »
Alright, I know I’ve asked before, but for the life of me, I cannot source the parking pawl linkage for my 1979 Mercedes 300SD Transmission. I’ve included a picture of it below. I have searched the yards here in Phoenix. Only yard that might have what I need is boarded up.  :-[

Mercedes Classic Center sent me a different linkage, and all metal linkage missing that plastic piece at the top that pushes the pawl over into the cog. I’m frustrated to no end.

Anyone have one or know where to source it, or even have a part number for this piece?

Thanks
John

Hi John

I just bought a 300SD parts car.  Excuse my ignorance but where would this pawl be found?

Easy to get to?

Looks like items 80, 83 and 86 in the attached parts catalog;

80 = A 115 270 06 65  - LINKAGE PARKING INTERLOCK
83 = A 115 990 21 40 - WASHER PARKING INTERLOCK
86 = A 115 278 05 71 - ROLLER PARKING INTERLOCK

Item 83 is listed as NLA at MBoemparts.com (my favorite online MB dealership parts webstore)
The classic center might have the washer
