Asked by Apr 02, 2014 at 10:56 PM about the 1999 Lexus RX 300 Base AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put a new  transfer case in my trans and installed the trans again and shifted the shifter
in park with no wiring or battery hooked up to my car and the front tires still turn like they
are in a gear besides park should they not move when the selector is in park?

If you have 3wheels on the ground and 1 up then no it will not turn but slightly.

If you turn 1 tire does the other tire turn in the opposite direction?
