I'd recommend replacement of the shifter assembly. If your MB dealership service manager is in extremely good spirits, he may do it for you under warranty, I know I've replaced a few cars with shifting problems and lots of sticky goo on the shifter assembly under warranty. If MB never asks to have the part returned, they'll never know. Try to clean up as much as you can on the top of the center console to make it less conspicuous.
