Hi all

My 535i has been parked up for 5 years. Inserted new battery and started without any problems, however will not move out of park on the selector lever. Key is not stuck in ignition, selector lever releases on depressing brake peddle and pressing lever lock so all ok there. Lever will move but under pressure, feels like it is stretching and willing to move but will not engage. I am no mechanic, but just wondering is it something simple like mechanism/cable seized. Car is parked in garage in such a way I cannot gain access never mind jacking it up, any suggestions to what may be wrong. Thanks..

I'm wondering if its the parking lock. Its possible that has seized. You could be stuck if you can't jack the car up to get at it though.

Can you get a tow on the car to drag it out of the garage? A little lube under the wheels to help save the tyres and you should be ok.
