No, only on street parking

HI Max.

firstly you need to disconnect the battery.

then find somewhere to store the vehicle for a couple of days to allow it to dry out with dehumidifiers .

this is important .

I have known this scenario before and if you are lucky no damage will be a good result

I can continue to work with you on this for another six days until the question expires

so feel free.
