I can't take my key of the ignition of '99 V70. I can start the car and turn it off, but I can't take the key out. Does anyone have any tips on removal? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Thanks,<br>Roberts

Are you sure it's going all the way into Park? I think there's some kind of interlock that doesn't let you remove the key unless the car is in Park.

Indeed there is, and sometimes it breaks as well. Check out this thread: <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=57734" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=57734</A>

Re: stuck key (roberts2036)

hope this isn't too elementary, but have you tried turning the steering wheel back and forth? On my 740 I would have to jiggle it a bit, but on my 98 V70 the steering wheel flexes to the left or right and (if stuck) the key comes out.<p>Good Luck!
