Issue

Some 2000-02 MY S-TYPE vehicles may exhibit difficulties in disengaging the selector lever from Park, particularly when the vehicle is parked on an incline. This can occur due to excess wear of the control lever profile. A new transmission manual control lever has been released to address this concern.
