    Unable to move out of park

    I had my first problem with the RRS yesterday. I got in as normal started it up, pressed the shift unlock button on the shifter to move from park to drive or reverse and it remained in park. The button felt strange and wasn't out as per normal. Fortunately I was at my office and had access to tools.
    A quick google search and I found that I'm not alone and SlimPickins on RANGEROVERS.net had already encountered the problem and devised a solution I followed his instructions for removal but found it is better to remove the #8 torx first before removing the park button.

    Some 5 minute araldite and a stiff piece of wire soon had the broken unlock button working and while the araldite was curing I ordered a new button kit (LR117072) from Advanced Factors.

    I suspect this part will fail on most vehicles after some use and it makes it undrivable. My repaired button is probably stronger than the original but I'll replace it and keep the repaired one as a spare.

    My RRS is at 104K now so if your getting up around the 100K mark it may be worthwhile changing the button out before it maroons you somewhere inconvenient. You could pull the shifter apart and short the switch if you had to, it is just a carbon pad going onto a circuit board but you have to dismantle the whole top of the shifter to access it.

    Expensive enough but at least the repair kit is available rather than having to replace the whole lever assembly.

    Yes, close to $150 with shipping. I could have gone for the Aliexpress version but decided to go genuine.
