  4. Cant shift into park

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I pulled into the movie theater last night and was physically unable to move my shifter past reverse and into park. My only option is to leave it in neutral and use my emergency brake.

    C900 Workshop
    Quick question: Passenger window stuck, worked when I got it just over a year ago, but as I hardly used it, it got progressively slower and now doesn't shift.
