    barrel may have colapsed so you may need to get a new one, apparently this is a common problem with astras. I had an issue where I could put my key in but it wouldn't turn.

    1/2 a can of wd40 later and all working!!!
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    Did the steering lock come on whilst removing it? Look inside the barrel, to the left there's a little square bit of metal that needs to be pushed down for the barrel to be put back in, a flat headed screw driver would be the best thing to use

    Let us know how you get on
