I'm currently building primarily for camping purposes a 2007 170 high roof cargo van. I've completed most of the 'typical' updates of grill, steering wheel badge and rear door badges to include MB OEM parts and pieces (with the exception being the horrendous purple MB air bag badge that glues in place of the Dodge badge.

There remain at least 2 items that I have been so far unable to upgrade from Dodge to MB - namely, the steering wheel itself including the matching OEM MB air bag.

To complete the transition from Dodge to MB, I'll also need to find an OEM floor shifter knob with the appropriate 3 point start atop it. I gotta tell you, I've spent countless hours trying to purchase an OEM shift knob and haven't gotten so far as finding either a part number or removal/installation procedure listing in the event I finally find this seemingly unicorn-like part.

Please know too that I live nowhere near a MB dealership as that was going to be job #1 to ask these questions before bothering any of you kind folks. It seems I live in the land of no information in spite of otherwise viable internet access. Beyond that, I've been unable to find a dealer that can solve my request to deep-six my Dodge steering wheel/air bag as well as make my shift knob find a place in the garbage in exchange for the vaunted 3 point star that I so long desire to add to my van.

Hopefully this request will find its way into the eyes of a someone who may find and share a way for a guy like me to complete the transition from the half Dodge/half Benz cargo into an all MB vehicle. I don't mind admitting that looks matter to me and I'll do whatever's needed to finish the otherwise needless upgrade.

Thank you all

Question the steering wheel with Airbag that you have show its the one with the Multi function Steering Wheel - is that the case for you, or you simply looking to upgrade?

As far as the Steering wheel (MFSW with Silver Accent) this is the PN A9064640501

The early Mercedes NCV3 Sprinters, like your Dodge and my 2012 Mercedes did not have an emblem on the shift knob. That was added about 2014 or 2015. My shift knob is just a smooth rounded knob as seen in this photo.

Hi Mike!

Thank you for writing and explaining something I hadn't realized before. You taught me that the MB shift knob emblem was added sometime around 2014 or 2015. As you explained, the photo of the shift knob you provided appears to look identical to the smooth, rounded knob found on my 2007 Cargo van.

That's good info for me to know and now realize I can begin looking for a shift knob from a more recent vintage van (2015 or newer).

Thank you!

p.s. As you may already know, the 2 photos I provided were examples of the type of steering wheel/air bag/shift knob I would like to find to add to my 2007 Sprinter.

Thank you VERY much for your prompt and thorough response to my request for info!

Although I'm not near my 2007 Cargo at the moment, I did find a photo that matches my current OEM factory steering wheel buttons, including the aftermarket MB air bag badge installed by me that simply suffices until I find the coveted 3 point star that I seem abnormally obsessed with finding

I hope the attached photo helps explain the factory steering wheel buttons on my 07 and know that I'll soon be searching the P/Ns you kindly provided in hopes of finding replacement parts so kindly identified and described by you.

Thank you once again!
