My fiancee's streetka petrol cap lock is very hard to open with the key it almost feels as though the key is going to snap when you try to lock/unlock it. Once opened you can turn the barrel with your fingers and it turns easily but when you try with the key it is very hard to do.

Any ideas on how to fix it or where to get it fixed or buy a replacement.

try giving it a soak with wd40 or some kind of lubricant to see if it improves the situation.

WD40 is great on locks, dodgy on other stuff!

WD40 is the king! Especially in this weather!
