Car Hit While Parked Transmission Damage – Yesterday I applied and waxed with my RAV. This was discovered when I stopped it and came back from work to test it. The impact dislodged my left rear tire and pushed my RAV 2’s leg into the Audi A8 in front of me. The front doesn’t look too bad…
The back door will no longer open. It doesn’t seem to matter. I could not start the car. The steering wheel is mounted on the right side and the key will not turn in the ignition. The main body is good, although I can’t tell at night.

Car Hit While Parked Transmission Damage
The guy who hit my car was kind enough to leave a note with the police report number. I have already called my insurance company.
Your Rental Car Was Hit While Parked? Here’s What You Should Do
I hope no one was hurt, but the first new car I bought broke down a year and a half later.
Any idea how bad the damage is? I’m researching body shops now and although the steering thing worries me, I hope the damage is relatively minor.
Sorry to hear about your misfortune. I know exactly how you feel. After a month and a half of ownership my RAV hit the rear end. I don’t know where it was, maybe it was in the parking lot or in my driveway. It’s hit and run, nothing. About 3 days later Wham! The uninsured kid ran a red light and I got hit again. Less than 800 miles on odo.
My oldest son was laughing today because I was parking the other cars too far from the store parking lot. After two and a half years, they laugh, saying that there are no such doors.
Most Common Car Accident Scenarios: Who’s Liable?
B.S. The reason the ignition key won’t turn is because the front wheels are under tension and the lock piston can’t release the steering wheel. Try turning the key by rocking the wheel from side to side.

Alas. Your accident sounds worse than mine and if they can fix yours without any problems it gives me hope that mine will be a simple repair. But the back door not opening bothers me. It doesn’t move.

Thanks for the tip about moving the steering wheel. i have tried to move the steering wheel but not with the key in it.

On a more serious note, sorry, glad your car crashed, you weren’t there to get hurt.
It deceives a person. A person may have left a note because someone saw it and couldn’t clean it up. Wait until you read the report. Yeah, well, for those who believe in fairies and unicorns, it might as well be an heir. Too bad I never met one of those mythical creatures (descendants) like Rigby.
Bad Habits That Damage Your Car
A backdoor can be one of two things. A bumper holds it in place or the floor goes up. The door can also be bolted, but you said that’s fine. A bumper is a cheap alternative, a floor, not so easy.
Junebug- I tried to move the wheel while turning the key and couldn’t do it, but the tow truck got it on the first try.
You are right. The driver tried to run away, but he was stopped. I got the information from one of my neighbors who didn’t realize the car was mine.
Speaking to Chicago PT, he said it could take up to a week for the computer to generate the report.

Today the tow truck came to pick up the RAV. A closer look shows that the door is pushed where the bumpers hit. This is most noticeable when you look at the spare tire and the TO of the Toyota logo is separate from the car. I also noticed that my plastic door flew off on impact, bending my wheel cage plastic bracket. There is a noticeable gap between my left tail light and the body, while on the right the gap is much narrower.
I noticed my RAV 2WD was dragged to the ground with the drive wheels. Is it harmful? The guy has been towing for 17 years and I told him on the phone it was FWD. I think he put the car in neutral and tied some things up, but I don’t know what else he did to get it ready for towing.
Dragging the car with one wheel on the ground can cause serious damage to the transmission. The transmission gear rotates without a pump without fluid. The tow truck driver has to pull it on a flat bed.

ATTENTION: exceeding these torque limits may cause transmission failure. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. If the transmission is inoperable or the vehicle must be towed more than 15 miles (25 km), the vehicle must be transported on a flatbed truck or with the front wheels off the ground.
Update: the correct torque is specified in the owner’s manual. Page 416 of 2009 says not to back up with drive wheels on the ground.
I hate to be right about things like this Makos, but my years on this planet have taught me to keep these things right.
Damage From Rear End
In terms of damage, you have a big problem on your hands. If the insurance is total, I will take the money and buy a new Rao. The door and back opening are probably not glazed. They need to readjust the hinges and the door. Back pain can go away. All of these can be fixed and beautified, but the problem is that even if it looks good when it rains, you can have problems like water leaks, snow build-up in your part of the world, and wind intrusion (wind noise). You may have problems with the door not closing or locking properly and hanging over time. The whole rear is at risk. This is just my opinion, decide for yourself what is best for you. Also, if it goes with your CarFax, that’s a big negative when selling. That’s why I ask them to throw it in their lap. Assuming it’s practically new, you should get 95% of the cost back.
The vehicle was towed 8.5 miles to the repair shop, 3-4 of which at 40-50 mph on the highway. I called the tow truck driver and expressed my concerns and he said it shouldn’t be a problem but would have the repair shop double check the transmission.
Rav408, it’s worse. If the insurers decide to total the vehicle, I will definitely take them up on their offer. However, it is crazy. it really doesn’t look too bad from the outside.

Click to expand… While it may not look bad on the outside, your RAV may have suffered serious damage on the inside. Either way, make sure the physical labor alone is worth a lot of money (or not). A year ago last December, some anonymous driver (I have no idea) backed into my RAV in a parking lot and broke the left rear tail light assembly and partially crushed the panel underneath it. The bill to replace the tail light and repair the dashboard exceeded $2,000. Your auto body work bill will be more than that.
