As mentioned, you won’t break your pin, but doing it the way I mentioned will minimize the loud clunk when pulling the shifter from park.
copy!! i just assumed the break was fine but simply couldn't handle that grade. if you say it should, ill look to have it fixed. like you say... problem solved!!
