Volkswagen Eos: Hi! the key will not go in to the ignition

Hi! the key will not go in to the ignition on my 2007 eos - can you please help. Many Thanks!
Welcome to Just Answer!!!

It wont go into the ignition cylinder or it goes inn but does not turn the ignition switch ??

it only goes in about 1/4 inch

Ok this issue is a common issue you have a faulty ignition switch because the tumblers inside the ignition switch have shifted and will not let the key go inn all the way you can try to use a small pick to be able to move the tumblers around in there and see if the key will go inn after that if this does not work then it will need to be towed to the nearest vw dealer because this will need to be ordered by the vehicles vin # XXXXX and usually takes about 5 days because it comes from Germany . I hope this helps

Pia positive feedback is highly appreciated thank you
