Customer Question

Hi Jessey,
Ignition only to position 1, so sprayed wd40 into lock and got it to move by rotating several times to momentary engine start and back. Lock now stiff but eased, however, loud grinding noise from "somewhere" in park and neutral and especially noisy when shifting between and through drive with auto stick. What do you think it is?

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
You have the noise when in P and N only?
does the noise come from the engine compartment or from inside the vehicle (passenger compartment)?
