Pete's MK1 1.6 Automatic key stuck problem

Postby flea » Tue Nov 20, 2012 8:39 pm

Pete has just bought a MK1 1.6 Automatic.

He can't get the key out of the ignition.

He's put some silicone spray into the barrel but it still won't shift. Any ideas ?

Buy a rottweiler to stand guard over it whilst you leave it parked up! :laughing-rolling:
