Think someone has tried to break into my car (didn't succeed) as now when i put my key into the lock to unlock it it's not going in smoothly like it used to do and when i feel the keyhole it feels raised to one side like someone has stuck something in there to try to unlock it. What i want to know is, is there a way of fixing this so the key opens the door smoothly like it used to or is it a case of changing locks and keys etc? Something i would rather avoid as i imagine that can get quite expensive. The car has central locking (with the key, not a fob) and the key as a chip in it for the immobiliser on the car. It's a 2005 Honda Civic.
