    Default Parking on slope

    Hi everyone, I own a Honda city 2015 manual transmission. I live at a place where my garage is at an incline, approximately 15 degrees. I was worried that, if I keep parking on the 15 degree slope for a longer time then it may harm my car, I.e transmission or hand brake etc. I'll be grateful for some expert opinion.
    Regards.

    Nothing is going to be wrong with this..parking brake is safe for it as well as keeping in 1 or R gear..you can keep a block beneath rear wheel after parking your car

    This is the slope. Front wheels are in level and rear are on slope. So nothing goes wrong with suspension, brakes and transmission etc ?
    Regards.

    Park in 1st gear. Let the clutch go first before pulling the handbrake. Go to bed.

    Thanks bro. Normal sequence which I follow is,
    While parking:
    Press brake pedal
    Gear neutral
    Engine off
    Release clutch
    Hand brake on
    Release brake pedal

    While driving it out:
    Press brake pedal
    Press clutch
    Gear neutral
    Engine on
    Put in gear
    Release hand brake

    Can you please tell if something wrong with this sequence ? What's the reason to release clutch before putting hand brake on ?

    Gear neutral? Put it in 1st gear, turn off the car and release clutch. Then put on the handbrake so the car stands in the gear and uses the handbrake as a backup.

    Putting in gear is fine if I have to park one odd time. But parking every day in gear will put load on it. I park on hand brake and put two bricks behind rear tires.

    park the car
    put handbrake
    get outside and place bricks behind front tyres
    get inside the car, release handbrake and wait for the bricks to take the load
    put handbrake
    put it in gear
    go to bed

    This way you can take the load off the brakes as well as gear. But if for some reason, car starts to move both brakes and gear will be there to stop it.
