Hard to get it out of Park in the cold
As living in Iceland you can imagine it can get sometimes quite cold here. It's been -2 the last two mornings and my 166 has problems getting out of park in that temp (it will get colder for sure later in the winter).
It seems that the switch relases that the lock on the gearlever when you press the brake doesn't work in the cold. I've been able to get it into gear with some brutal force, but i'm afraid one day my frustration will simply end up with me holding onto the gearlever after it has left the socket. This "force" hasn't damaged anything yet, because when the car get's hot the switch works fine.
Any ideas how i can fix it or where it's located.
