Bad Parking Lock/piston?

I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this problem.

If I have my car running and pump the break a few times and take my foot off, I can take my car out of gear. As well as when its in park and if I continue to pump the break it has a popping sound under my shifter..

My assumption is parking piston.. Has anyone had to replace it or can it be fixed?

I would just take it in then, and see what they say.

And that sucks about your neighborhood, my buddy's was just vandalized. Someone went around and sliced peoples tires.
