E34 540i '95 Ignition stuck (archive)

Im my E34, 540iA '95 when I take my ignition key out something is still stuck inside and car still "thinks" that the key is in. You can't even insert key again until you push hard (or hit) the ring around the ignition lock. Than something pops inside and everything comes back to "normal". Also it is somewhat hard to turn the key in ignition in normal operation (bought this car used and was always hard to turn key but never stuck until now). Anybody has any idea?
Is is fixable? Do I need to change the ignition switch and/or door locks?
