Mystery Slot in Corolla Hybrid GR Sport 2L

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Today i found the first interesting full road test of a 2l Corolla Hybrid GR2  Sport on an Irish Youtube channel. The curious  thing is the tester stated that there was a slot for a key on the left hand side of the cover(see pic) for the gear change stick. The tester stated this key is for the  release the transmission if you have to ever push the vehicle. What is he talking about ??😯

its a shift interlock, (usually releases when you put you foot on the brake) if you need to take the car out of park and it has no power or something doesn't work you pop the cap off and push down on the release to move the selector

Yup. A standard feature on all automatics.

Also very useful if you manage to drop your keys down the drain that you just so happen to be parked on top of! 🙃

Yeah it's a riveting read. Keeps you guessing right through to the end. Turns out it was done by some bloke called Servicing Interval and I think he was a serial killer because he did it at least once every year.
