156 Auto Key Stuck Jammed IN ignition
I have tried searching this forum, google and elswhere - either I am looking for the wrong phrase or I am being stupid. Please feel free to bounce me to a new thread if I have missed something already here.
My (most pressing) problem with my 1998 Alfa 156 2.5 Auto is that the key is stuck in the ignition. Car works fine, and I have a spare key to lock with, but it is a real pain not being able to remove the ignition key. Eveery garage I go to tells me that it is a common problem but will cost 350 quid to fix - frankly I have already spent a small fortune keeping my 156 going and this is looking like the last straw. Is there a way to realease the key? If I strip down the ignition will I be able to release it somehow, or am i then going to get issues with the imobiliser etc all starting to play up?
Thanks for andy advise you can give
