    My A CLASS 200 gearshift lever can be moved to the P position but the gearbox doesnt lock , the car rolls away if handbrake is not applied. Any ideas? Denham

    It could be the shifter. Have you tried tapping it when you move it from R to P?

    If that makes a difference then you should adjust the shifter link that connects to the transmission.

    No it still won't lock up. I have just tried it with the car still moving and that does the trick but I don't think this is good practice!!

    Yeah definitely don't put it in park while moving. You may end up causing more problems.

    Thanks for your time, looks like I will need to get the shift mechanism checked out . Denham
