    hi,

    a couple of times now my ignition barrel seems to lock over and jam, by that I mean it does not accept the key into it

    Ive sprayed a small amount of WD40 in, thinking that may help free up any sticky parts, but there does seem to be a small metal plate coming over from left to right, as you look at the vertical key slot...

    until I get the key into the lock I cannot move or drive the car :shrug::censored:

    has anyone else experienced this odd problem?
