Is there a secret to changing the gear shift knob. I would like to swap the knobs between my 92 300SD and 97 S420, are they compatible?

NO, on the 1992 W140 cars the knob comes with the chrome shaft made on to it!

YES the R129 has simular set-up. After 1996 MB figured how to supply just a knob. THERE are aftermarket knobs w/shaft avail.
