Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
I moved my car last night and cannot get the key out. I've tried turning the wheel, giggling the gear shift, starting the engine, and moving the car, it won't come out! The FOB broke off in the process.
This may sound strange but will most likely work:
You will need another person to assist you. This usually happens when parked on a hill or grade.
While trying to remove the key, have the second person push the car forward and back as if the car were stuck.
This will revolve the gears in the transmission a little and most likely will release the key.
If not, call your dealer.
