I recently purchased a 2007 passat with some front left damage.
As you can see there is damge to the front left suspension and steering. The car starts but does not want to go to drive. Stuck in the park position. At first i was worried it was the transmission, but i can manually put it into drive by unhooking the shift cable and use my hand, my guess it is an electrical/computer issue. I took all the old suspension parts of and waiting on the new ones i ordered. My question is could it be not switching out of park because everything was damaged, and will change after parts are replaced?
I'll try to keep you updated on my little project.
