Today is my Birthday! That isn't my issue. Having trouble turning my key.
Any suggestions? Would some sort of lube help? Getting a new ignition is very expensive.
Dealer said wait time getting one from Germany is pretty long?
Thanks for any suggestions

I have the same issue.

Hey I just bought an 07 beetle for my daughter, nice car however have a problem with ignition. Have to jiggle key in ignition to start or stop car,key seems to bind in ignition.

Replaced the tumbler and purchased a new key, still have problem.

What I know about ignition:
1.Key Tumbler, part of ignition where key goes in.

2.Middle Section "barrel", links key and switch together.

3.Electrical Portion on the end switch.

Does anyone have/had this problem? Could it be the barrel or switch?
Tried other things like sit in seat, put seat belt on, turn steering wheel, nothing works, need some help!!
