Customer Question
I drive mitis.outlander. I...

I drive mitis.outlander. I was shopping and I went back to the car to put urchases in the trunk when my key bent, I straightened out the key and I stuck it in ignition trying to get home When I got home the key would not come out.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

The key will turn the car on .It is worn.The car is a 2006 outlander

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Outlander yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried to get it out gently but it would not come out.So I thought if I sprayed a littled wd40 ,It might release the key.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is it

Make sure your automatic transmission shifter button is all the way out, the button releases the key, put it in D and back to park and see if that makes any difference. You can't pull the key out unless it's all the way in park with the button on the shifter released, just double check that part.
