You will have to take apart the steering column, breaking it down to the switch in order to get it out. I hope you have a lot of patience.

hi. its very unlikely that you will ever remove the broken key from the barrel. your best bet is to replace the barrel complete with key. from a breakers yard.

Wrong key broke off in ignition of a 2004 focus how do i removed this piece


Might have to have the barrel drilled out and replaced, I have removed broken keys with very fine crochet needles and a lot of patience. To take a barrel out without damage the key needs to be turned into the first position to depress the barrel lock pin, which you can't do with the broken key in. Good luck

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working


sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

The key has broken in the ignition and the lower section of key is stuck in the barrel. The car still starts and runs . How do i remove the broken section of key from the ignition barrel, I have removed...


on the left side of barrel, look for a dowel, there should be a vary small opening that you can take something as small as a pinhead and push the dowel in ,while pushing in on dowel pull the barrel out.the key may need to also be in on position for removal. try that and see if it works. if not please repost your question. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How do to remove ignition barrel as key broken in barrel


You must remove the steering wheel and locking plate underneath. This requires special tools that may be lended to you if you live near an Autozone and purchase the parts from them. To remove the tumble you must turn it to the "run" position with a screwdriver and poke in the small locking pin that is located on the front bottom surface of the tumbler bore. If you are unable to turn the keyswitch, it becomes necessary to replace the entire steering collar. Thank you, Dana
