Exclamation ignition stuck!


We have a 1996 Escort station wagon in the Netherlands (i.e. European manufacture) and cannot get the key to turn in the ignition to start the car. One garage has suggested that the entire ignition will have to be taken out and replaced-though they haven't seen the car yet so it was only a guess based on verbal info...so this seems a bit extreme since it feels like the steering wheel is just locked and we simply can't get it unlocked. We've tried pushing, turning, pulling, and jiggling every which way though and it just doesn't give the way it normally does.

Any suggestions???

I'm inclined to agree with the garage the ignition lock cylinder will need replaced.
