This is something we see more often than we should. We call this “auction sabotage”.

A seller (car lot, usually), takes their car to the auction and buyers are allowed to look at them before bidding. Some shady ass buyers create problems with the vehicles in hopes of depressing their value and scaring other buyers off.

This the the valve body from the transmission. There is a small black piece of plastic which is preventing the manual valve from moving all the way (manual valve is connected to the shifter lever and cable)...

Black plastic from the previous filter being smashed. Pan was pushed in. No sign of damage until a while later and the manual valve got jammed up in drive and low. All works good now. Shifts good

So some clarification, car came in for a set of 4 tires. When the wheel lock key couldn’t be found, we recommended taking the car to the dealership so they could use their master set to remove it. The salesman didnt like that answer, and told us to press on and remove the locks He was informed there will be damage to the wheel, as we dont have the tools we needed to do it the right way. ..
