Will apreciate some opinions. When I remove the key from the ignition switch some times it does not do the clicking sound,is the problem with the ignition switch or the stearing wheel lock mechanism?

It's the ignition switch. It could be either the $8 electrical part on the end (about 5-15 minutes to change with a small screwdriver) or the $120 mechanical part (about an hour to change with a couple of wrenches).

Since the electrical part of the switch is no longer available from Porsche on the earlier cars,only from Audi. You should update the lock assy. with 996 347 017 07. It comes with the newer style electrical portion & doesn't fail as often as the original.

The electrical potion is widely available, just not from Porsche. It is $8.65 on AutoHausAz.com (part #4A0905849B), for example.
