Question about 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II
The vehicle rolls when it is in PARK. If I'm on even a slight incline, it rolls. It just started happening 2 days ago. Vehicle has 81,000 miles. Everything else in transmission still fine. Shifting, etc. When it rolls, I simply apply the emergency brake to stop the vehicle from rolling. Without the brake, the vehicle would roll freely and not stop. A friend says the PARK-PULL is not engaging. He suggested an old shadetree trick: Start the vehicle moving in reverse 3-5 mph, then shift into PARK. He said that might free the PARK-PULL shaft. That did not work unfortunately. So if anyone is familiar with this symptom in Land Rover, and knows what the likely repair is I'd sure appreciate it. Trying to determine if it is something that will require an "adjustment" of some sort, or a full transmission rebuild. Thanks in advance.
It is known as the Parking Pawl assembly, and requires removal of the gearbox from the vehicle along with the transfer box. You then remove the extension housing (requiring new bolts) and then replace the park lock gear and o'ring.
