02 M5 Ignition, key, steering lock issue
I searched plenty and found many threads with different symptoms to mine.
One day my key won't go in and I notice a metal flap blocking it's entry. I immediately notice that the steering wheel not only isn't locked, but it won't lock at all no matter how far I turn it in either direction.
I forced the key in it started right up. I then pulled the key out halfway and cleaned and lubed the lock assy. Now the flap is open and I can get the key in with a wiggle. It' is tighter sliding in than it used to.
The steering still will not lock with the key out. I'm not sure where to start. Steering lock assy? I really hope I don't need a new tumbler and new keys etc...
