Re: Laguna key problems.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

The lock needs freeing off and lubricating,try spraying some WD40 (or similar) with the tube fitted to the nozzle that comes with a new can into the lock the lock with the key,then keep repeating.Eventually the tumblers in the lock will free and then you need to add some spray grease into the lock to prevent them seizing up again.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
