I'm finding sometimes, but not always, it difficult to turn my key in the ignition to start it. I have to really wriggle it and force it. Yet most times it's okay.
Has anyone else had this? Just wondering whether the wafers in the cylinder are starting to get damaged/worn.
I have a heavy key ring with lots of keys which I've since discovered is not good, and do many stop starts as I'm a dog walker. It's a 2001 with 112000 miles.
Any thoughts please. TIA

It could be the barrel wafers have worn into the barrel casing or the ignition switch is starting to break up internally,or even a bit of both,very common on the G,a few years ago i was doing these at least a couple of times a week.
I always found it best to change both at the same time.
