Question about 1995 Volkswagen Passat
Ignition key has snapped off inside the ignition lock barrel.The key can still be turned into 1st & 2nd postions but the engine will not turn over.The dashboard lights all come on & the central locking still works but nothing further than that. I have a spare key but need to remove the part of the key that is remaining inside the lock barrel.
I need to know how to remove the lock barrel & nhow to remove the part of the key held inside the ignition lock barrel
Hi I would suggest you ring the Automobile association, and see whether one of their mobile mechanics can solve your problem. extracting a car key from the barrel may be more difficult than it appears. He, the mobile man may have done it before and have the right tools for the problem.

under the passenger side carpet there is an ECU for windows and doors,peel back the carpet and remove the plastic box it sits in look carefully at the wires and im sure you will find some broken repair these and problem fixed

I have solved the problem with the help of others who post earlier comments who had a similar problem. I read that the tang at the entrance of the tumbler sleeve that receives the key is plastic and that by using a small sturdy screw driver you can bend the tang in. I was then able to insert the key. I plan on having a new tumbler sleeve installed in the near future.

Can be a Junk Relay, access is limited, but giving the Starter a "crack" with a mallet, often cures the problem temporarily. But check the Battery terminals, and Cable to the Starter solenoid ,first for tightness and security.
