Angry car is dead, need to tow to dealer - gearbox stuck!!!


my '04 Impreza RS has an immobiliser Keypad that is in need of the Master Code..... i played around with it and stuffed it

i need to tow it to the dealer....ok.... but the car is total disabled

the little button thinggy on the AT transmition that unlocks the gear stick is broken :s ...so i can't get it out of Park

what do i do??? don't want the tow truck driver to just drag the car onto the flatbed when he shows up in the morning

any thoughts ????????????

If tow truck driver can get at the front(not sure where its parked) could ya not take propshaft off to rear then just lift front end up with truck.

Will also depend on your mechanical knowledge i guess.

(im no expert on auto`s so if ive missed something obvious shoot me lol)

As Dave said above could you not just get tow truck with a HI-AB (crane) to lift the 4wheels off the ground and put it on their flatbed know this to well here in the city cause the tow trucks are all over the place and if its not the tow trucks its the clampers cause if they just lift it and tow it by front 2 wheels you will damage diffs cause of constant AWD
