Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Yes we need to remove the weight off the park lock mechanism inside the transmission. If rocking it forward does not help the yes jack up the rear to see if the shifter will disengage. If not then we need to remove the cable off the shifter then go underneath and move the lever on the transmission.

thank you very much ive been shopping for weeks and to finally stretch and get this car i have this issue, I realise now always use the handbrake in future. in your experience does jacking it up work well or is it just a hopefull easy fix?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 10 years ago
Depending on the slope of the incline jacking up may not work but in most cases it does.
