Question about 2008 Audi A4
I have recently purchased a 2008 audi A4 avant (manual). After driving the car a few times, the key became difficult to remove on stopping. Only by various attempts (nothing very scientific involved) am I able to retrieve it. Takes an average of five minutes to remove. Not very convenient sitting outside the office struggling with it...
No problems the first few times I drove it but a problem every time now.
You should lubricate them with small amount of lubricant such as WD 40. The lubricant will help to prevent those tiny pins in the lock from binding.
When you can’t remove or insert the key, this means that the lock cylinder are jammed (from lack of lubricant) or are already broken. If you feel something is not right with the lock, lubricate the lock immediately.
If this doesn’t solve the problem, replace the lock assembly.
