Ignition switch problem ??

Hi,

Well it's not really a problem because I have no problem starting the car or turning the key in the switch, but when I just insert the key fob in the switch without turning it, the key is all loose, I can wiggle it. It feels cheap ??

What do you think is it and what should I do ?

Thanks

Loose bezel? Worn tumbler? Worn barrel?

To be fair, the latter two are normally indicative of a sticking key so check the bezel first - key in position 1 and see if the chrome ring moves any
