2003 Tiptronic TRANSMISSION will not got into park after repair

Recommended Posts

Had to remove the tiptronic to replace the trans oil pump and torque converter. Naturally, this involved removing a lot of the guts of the transmission. All seemed to go back into place with ease. The transmission is back in the car and electronic connectors back in place. However, when I tried to put the cable back on the shift knob ON THE TRANSMISSION, with the gear selector in PARK, the end of the cable was off, because the transmission shift selector would not move into the PARK position. The furthest back it would go is REVERSE.


The position of the transmission was verified by the indicator on the dash readout. In Reverse, the two ends lines up perfectly and they did in neutral.  If I connect the cable to the transmission mounting point, the gear selector will not go into park, because the shifting mechanism on the transmission is preventing it. 


I did did not remove the shifting mechanism on the transmission, nor did I mess with the shift cable or gear shift in the car.


What would prevent the gear shifting mechanism (on the transmission) from being manually into the park position?

I think I found my issue.......




When I reinstalled the valve body, I neglected to make sure the selector tab was inserted into the piston. I hate removing things and reinstalling because I was stupid!
