I park the SLK - gearstick to 'park' - handbrake fully on.

Release my foot from the brake pedal and the car moves about a few inches forward or back depending on the slope.

This, to me, says 'engine/tranmission mounts'.

If so which is the main culprit? - I assume Transmission.

If not - what could it be?
If the handbrake is fully set and the car rolls then it is not doing its job. Either the cables have seized and not actually set the brakes or they are out of adjustment. Do a test by having the car on a slight decline, leave it in neutral, set the hand brake, and then release the foot brake. Does it roll?
