I can't get my items at the chest inside the embassy. Please help how to fix this bug.

We could use a bit more info. Can you see them but not take them? Can you not open the chest? Have you talked to Malborn? Has he distracted the kitchen staff yet? – SevenSidedDie Apr 11 '13 at 3:48
Yes, the door was locked. I opened the chest and my items are not there. It's the optional quest to retrieve my gear. – Ulfric Stormcloak Apr 11 '13 at 3:53
Have you talked to Malborn? – SevenSidedDie Apr 11 '13 at 4:18
I think I am.. I tried to load it again and still don't get my gear. – Ulfric Stormcloak Apr 11 '13 at 5:23
... You think you are what? ... Okay, can you just tell us what you've done to get to the chest? Tell us a story, and maybe we'll be able to see what's going wrong. If you don't tell us more we can't help you. – SevenSidedDie Apr 11 '13 at 17:13

I mistakenly thought that I would get my weapons, items and clothing inside the embassy. As I repeat the quest it is clear that it is not necessary to give Malborn the items I want to smuggle inside (which I had thought was a requirement).
