I have not been having any issues with my bug. Last night I went to grocery store. When I got in the car to leave I put the key in the ignition and started to turn. At the same time I felt something give and the key freely moved all the way forward. At this point my car wouldn't start and the ignition was stuck in the on position. I have found a post on how to get the ignition out, my question is has anyone had this issue before? Do you know what part I need to replace? If I have to replace the whole ignition how do I go about the keys? Not exactly sure what I need to purchase. Any help is greatly appreciated.

99 VW Beetle, Manual, 2.0

Not sure the parts, unless just the ignition part. But you can key it to your keys before you put it in. Order by your vin number and you should get the right one. As explained to me by another member here.

Per dealer though, if it isn't done right your car won't run. Duh, but may have to tow it in to get fixed.
