2003 SLK230 Silver
I searched past topics on keys not turning in the ignition but could not find anything. I have a 2003 SLK Kompressor and my problem is this. My wife never seems to be able to turn the key in the ignition. It just feels like it will break in her hand. I personally never had this problem until lately. The only way to get the key to turn is to first turn my steering wheel until it locks into place. Then I need to wiggle the wheel back and forth until the key turns. When it finally does turn, it turns very easily. Is there something going bad in my steering column or what. It is very embarrassing at a gas station when people watch me trying over and over again to get the key turned and all I am doing is accidently locking and unlocking the doors. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
