Mercedes Vito Viano gear selector stick repair kit manual gearbox W639
Vito / Viano Manual 6 speed gear box Lever, gets worn and loose over time on High Mileage vehicles. This causes problems shifting into 2nd gear and also sometimes reverse. This removes the worn plastic bush, instead of replacing the complete gear lever assembly (which is a very expensive part at the dealers) See the Youtube Video showing the replacement.
Cost of the locally manufactured part is R500.00 Incl Vat. Add R100 for Fastway Courier Door to Door to any address in SA.
Please also note there can also be other reasons for a Vito not shifting into 2nd and reverse. Could also be loose bracket or a cable adjustment. Worst case are worn parts in the gearbox, but this is a cheap point to start.
Our new stock has switched to a Gray colour part (previously White) as this material is longer lasting.
