Hello from Greece SLKWorld! I bought my R170 (SLK200) beauty from a friend recently, however it needs some cosmetic touches. One of the most annoying things is the worn gear shift knob. I went ahead and I bought a universal one, however I cannot find a step by step tutorial on how to change it. All the tutorials I find are for automatic transmission and mine is manual. Also, does anyone know if I will need a new leather shift boot. I await your replies! Thank you in advance for your help.

Here are the pictures of my new Knob

Hi Skitais,
Go to pelicanparts.com. They have a technical area that will show you a step-by-step on how to replace the shift lever knob. Both the automatic and manual transmission shift knob is r & r ed the same.
Good luck. Dave
