Anyone have any tips on how to remove a stuck on tow bar which should be quick release. I can not get the key in and wondered if any one else has had the same problem.

a good dose of WD40 into the lock.
if that fails, you can buy a new lock for Â£10cDuncan
If I'd known I was going to be so thirsty this morning I'd have drunk more beer last night.

Prise the dust cover back and keep dosing with WD40 it will give eventually. I gently tapped with small hammer too. It took a few days. It now lives off the car except when in use and always with a squirt when I take it offPot Noodle Challenge Winner 2011

Took me 3 days to remove from D3 when I sold it on had been in place for about 3 years - lots of WD40 and wiggling around, eventually key went in and after more WD and more wiggling it moved
Loke previous posts, now lives off the car and is lubed after each use
Okay key is half in and wd40'd up, think it'll be a long process

Keep trying you never know your luck, gave up the ghost with mine after 3 years of trying It's now a permanent fixture, at least nobody can pinch it (easily) It can when others can't,
It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.
If anyone one can pm me the way to remove it it would be appreciated

As Adam said...
Took days and lots of WD40. Think a hammer and block of wood was involved at one point. I do remember thinking that I was stuffed and i would never see it out again but it came.
Like Adam, from that point off it was off the car unless needed...nil admirari

Had the same problem talked to my local independent land rover people not surprised the things get nicked.
lesson never leave on the car for 4 years spent 4 hours over the weekend on it with WD40 & Plus-gas after talking to them took less than 60 seconds to remove it
No wonder they get nicked a 5 year old could get it off
now it will only be fitted to my new Disco 4 when need to use it then into the boot it will go
