I have an XE 2016 automatic
transmission.From a sudden i started having
clicking sounds in my gear selector only when
pressing break only in P and N.I never had this
thing before and i panicked a lil bit tbh.From
what i know ZF8 transmission is very reliable
and durable. Now i dont really know what that
clicking sound means. I can hear it directly
under the gear selector only when pressing
break in P and N.
Help? :)

That click is the solenoid releasing allowing you to move the rotary gear shift into different gears. Perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

But why from a sudden, i mean until now after thousands of miles it wasn’t doing like that.
