Question about 1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
First go to a lock smith and ask to get your lock sprayed with special lock lubricant they have. Do not use WD40. If still stiff you'll have to replace the lock cylinder. I avoided this hassle by removing all of the brass thingies inside of the old cylinder. Now the ignition is always easy to turn and anything you can fit in there will work. You still have the security system to prevent anyone from entering the vehicle, and besides, no one but you knows that a key is no longer necessary. In my case it was WTF as it already has over 278K on the odometer. You'll have to remove the cylinder to do this, and this is not easy, but at least you will not need the extra key that will be required for a new lock cylinder. Good Luck!
