I'm having a weird issue this morning with my 2008 passion; the key won't go in all the way so I am unable to turn the key. Last night when I came home the key came out fine and there was no sign of things sticking. I've never had any troubles with the key...ever.



What I've tried:
1. A couple drops of 99% alcohol in the key hole...no help
2. Gently cleaning the gunk out of the grooves on the key..no help
3. Whacking the cylinder with a tiny rubber mallet...no help
4. Jiggling the key up and down while trying to turn it back and forth...no help


Any thing else I can do? I need a way to be able to at least get the thing in neutral so I can push it out and get my other vehicle.
