igntion is not turning over to start engine. very hard to get out of locked postion after pressing brake and moving steering wheel. anyone know a good supplier on line to get the ignition/key/switch/barrel? One of these require the vin number so it matches your fob. is it only a dealer item?

Very common issue; column lock wears and gets jammed. Other members here; have replaced the parts and this is the fix. Parts were genuine vw; special ordered by vin number and this keeps, all the keys matched, these are made, keys cut in Germany. It is best to replace parts like these with new genuine vw parts; that are used all the time, multiple times a day and if they fail, can leave you stranded. The parts aren't cheap but totally worth it; considering the cost if a tow bill or pro shop repair, can get expensive quick.
