Mini Cooper Drive to Park without Braking
My granny got out of my mini Cooper in our
driveway without putting in park. I ran to the car
and moved it from drive to park, but I'm not 100% I
had depressed the brake. Now when I reverse, I
hear this weird sound... Like a fork stuck in a
garbage disposal. Is my car destroyed?
I don't think your car is destroyed, but you may have damaged the park lock mechanicals when you shoved into park, I'm really not too familiar with the mini but have seen this on other makes and some just damaged the solenoid mount and was an easy fix, I defently would have it checked out, who knows maybe a few bucks spent how could save you big time later on.
Thank you for your very prompt response, @tennisshoes!!
