I don't know what year your 500E is, but if the shift linkage is anything like my 97 E320 it's easy to fix. I had the same rattle comming from my shifter that was driving me crazy. I pulled the console out and removed 4 allen screws that mount the shifter to the floor and found a broken bushing where the transmission linkage connects to the shifter. There is a spring loaded clip that needs to be removed with needle nose pliers and the bushing just snaps in place. The hardest part was unpluging the wireing connectors for the power windows. Start to finish....1 hour. Your 500E may be a little different but the concept should be the same. Good luck
