Ive managed to snap a key whilst putting the centre cap on my wheel on my D3 Biturbo. The cap is on the wheel. Any ideas how to get it off and key out please? Cheers

Tweezers, watchmakers screwdrivers and maybe drill a small hole at an angle if there's a bit if key left visible to help get some purchase and get the broken bit out.

Hi,
I realise this post thread is ancient but thought it might be of interest that my key also snapped in the lock. BMW quoted silly so began search and found a nice Aussie on eBay selling them for peanuts. Just stated my old key code and a week later new key arrived...happy days!
