91 300SEL stuck in PARK gear selector position

Subject line pretty much says it all. This first happened about a week ago. I turned car off/on a few times and the transmission would pull out of park into REVERSE.

Happened again today. Pull off side of the road for a second, put in PARK, left engine running, then tried to pull out of PARK into REVERSE. Would not budge - stuck in PARK. Shut off engine and turned back off/on several times. No luck. Got out of car,went around back and rocked car back and forth a few times. Restarted engine and tried to pull out of PARK - still stuck. Went thru the engine off/on scenario a few more times. Finally it broke loose and pulled down into reverse. Car seemed to lunge forward a bit?

Any ideas what I'm dealing with? Thanks.

engine off/on

Foot is on the brake. Other than a brain fart, what else could cause this? Thanks.

Not sure if yours is the same, but the late 124 chassis have cable/cam lock adjustment at the shift gate assem.
I have the instructions for E320 , [ which may be simular]if you would like .
Email me and I will scan what I have.

Or try a tranny shop that knows Benz. I'm sure they will know this adjuster.
