Why won't my 2009 Mini Hard Top shift in cold weather?
Ever since Christmas Eve, the car won't shift without excessive force. I leave the car in
reverse when I park, and in the morning, it's almost impossible to get to neutral, then into
first, etc. After a bit, I run it through the gears and it loosens up and shifts without a
problem. I assume it is related to the cold, but it's been in the same climate for five years
without a problem. Anyone know what could cause this? Can it be fixed? Am I doing
damage to the car by forcing it into gear? The clutch seems fine.
