Question about 1997 Porsche Boxster
If it is stuck "ON" the door I recommend checking to see if someone played a bad prank on you using Crazy Glue or the like, the only way to get it unstuck is by means of nail polish remover, which you will have to be careful it doesn't remove the paint if it should accidentally splash on it, try it in an inconspicous area first like on the paint inside the door, if the key is stuck "IN" the door meaning it is in the lock cylinder and won't come out.... short of removing the door and bringing it to a locksmith, I would recommend first trying to spray WD 40 into the lock all around the side of the key and penetrating the lock tumblers inside, while sprayiing(wera eye protection) try to "jiggle" the key all ways to get it free, the tumblers may be clogged up and sticking from weather elements, WD 40 works great on locks.
If all fails call in a locksmith they house call but get an idea of the price first before they come so you can be aware of the basic costs before hand.
The lock cylinder may have been violated meaning someone may have stuck a tool into it and tried to break into the car that is may be why the key is stuck as well, the lock smith will know.
Hope this works.
