Think this might be a common subject but i haven't come across an answer yet
If i press down on the bonnet whilst turning the key to the left (before then turning to the right) it sometimes 'opens' but most of the time it feels like the key will snap.
Pushing down doesn't always help but is better when pushed, have had a spare standard key cut to avoid damaging the expensive remote keys.
Have lubricated the inner 'lock' with wd40 & tried greasing the end of the barrel going into the vehicle.
Any help appreciated.
