give the barrel plenty of wd40 or ptfe spray, might help

are you sure key is going fully into barrel

try another key, that might be slightly less worn, occasionally, ive had a new basic key, cut, just for opening the bonnet

There is a very good thread on here somewhere explaining how to fix this, I just can't find it just now. On my playbook just now and it's a bit fiddly for searching. When I get access to a computer I'll have a proper look for you.

EDIT: Beaten to it! :-)
