    Having a really annoying problem with my A3. When removing the key from the ignition, there is usually a click which turns the interior lights on, turns off the stereo and allows me to lock the car.

    Slight problem, every now and again mine gets stuck! This means i have to get back into the car, turn the key and then try again! :keule:

    Don't wanna go spraying anything in there if its gonna do any damage.

    Anyone got any ideas???

    Cheers

    Can't see it doing any damage mate, but I am no mechanic!

    A small squirt of WD40 should do the trick
