SO the engine starts and run but the shifter is stuck in park? Is the P lite up red on the shifter?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Yes. It's not stuck so it doesn't move. I can pull it back but it sticks so I can't get it into reverse. If I push it back and forward and play with it it kinda clicks and then goes into reverse slot.
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok first we need to make sure the cable bolts are not loose. We need to jack up the driver side of the vehicle and make sure both the 8 mm bolts securing the cable to the transmission are tight. If so then the problem is most likely with the shifter and or cable.

From what u say it implies it is not a major problem and my local service guy should be able to fix?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 6 years ago
Yes based on everything we discussed. Keep me posted.
