hey has anyone ever had any problems with a 2nd gen crx (4th gen civic) with the ignition lock cylinder. IF I park my car and turn the steering wheel so it locks it has become almost impossible to get the key to turn and start the car almost like my key doesn't fit anymore. Is it a bitch to change the lock cylinder with a new one ??

Thanks in advance

its not a prob. what happens is there is to much preasure against the ignition lock when it does this just turn the wheel (there should be about a 1\4" of play) which ever way it will go, hold it, then try turning your key
