2000 Petrol Scenic Ignition key stuck / broke
Hi again to forum
Last week I noticed my ignition key wasn't springing back when starting the car up. I have had to manually pull the key back just enough to disengage the starter to use the car.
This morning in town the key wouldn't release and then wouldn't turn forward enough to spin the starter to get me home (which was overcome by bump starting with the ignition lights on !).
I have taken the offending barrel out, It is the ring/receiver
around the barrel type, but the key won't come out at all and I guess therefore that I need a new barrel and key.
Am I right in thinking that I can swap the original black plastic transponder case from my old key to a new blade on a new or secondhand barrel and refit the whole lot and everything will be ok ?
Thanks V Much
