You have to take the steering column covers off. you will then have access to the inner workings like screws pins and springs. make sure you place the parts in order of disassembly so installation of new tumbler will be easy.please rate this solution

IF you have a locksmith take it out it is possible that he may be able to repair the pins in the tumbler but I think the cost would be more than getting a new tumbler. If you use a locksmith then he can set the new tumbler pins so that you can use the old key and that will save you carrying extra keys unnecessarily.

Remove broken key from gm ignition lock


Physically removing a piece of an ignition key from the tumbler is practically impossible. The tumbler is filled with spring loaded tabs which raise and lower against EVERY notch on a key. That resistance will fight your every motion as you try to back the key remnant out. As one tab releases, the next in line raises into the vacancy just created. GM, even with the "fob"/ chip installed in most of their keys, also put greater anti-theft detail into their ignition tumblers. IF this is an ignition lock that has a chip sensor, the practical repair is a complete key/tumbler replacement. This isn't a DIY repair. It will involve removing the steering wheel and column covers, air bag, AND re-coding the vehicle computer to accept and recognize the new key/chip code. The re-coding CAN be done at home. Immediately after the new tumbler is installed, leaving the ignition in the "run" position for 1 hour, will re-code the antitheft in the computer.

LOST ORIGINAL IGNITION KEY ON 1989 MERCEDES BENZ. REPLACEMENT KEY I RECEIVED DOES NOT FIT IGNITION SO ORDERED A IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER AND NEED TO GET INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REMOVE OLD...


it would be cheaper to have a locksmith make a key to fit your old ignition lock. I dont know why you didnt do that, before ordering a lock cylinder. Nothing on a MB is cheap. the key is the cheapest thing there is.

Don't know how to get old ignition switch out to put new one in.


How to remove an ignition cylinder for repair or replacement if your Grand Cherokee's ignition won't turn. This is due to the tumblers failing. Key must be tuned to the on position. Then you press in the lock tab to release it so you can repair yourself or more likely, bring it to a locksmith to have the tumblers replaced. This can be done to match the existing key. Obviously, you'll have to get it to turn to do this. Usually a good dose of WD40 and tapping on the head of the key (straight in) will free it up temporarily. This would be the view from underneath the column after removing the two shroud halves.

1985 corvette key stuck in ignition so cant change it out


You can remove the ignition module as a whole and Dis-Assemble it to remove the tumblers and get the key back that way. If your replacing the Ignition set anyway once you get the module removed you can install the new on and toss the old one. You can have the doors and trunk re-keyed by a locksmith to match the new key. Make sure you remove any key chain you have attached to the ignition key that is stuck and follow the removal steps for the ignition module. Should be fine.

Was replacing the ignition switch and accidently broke off a silver piece off of where the switch goes connected. Can you some one tell me if this can be replaced and if I have to replace the entire key...


Replacing An Ignition Switch..

If The Ignition Switch Is Defective, It Must Be Replaced Regardless. Before Removing A Dashboard-mounted Switch, The Tumbler (Lock Mechanism) Must Be Removed From The Switch.Normally A Small Piece Of Wire Is Inserted Into A Hole IN The Front Of The Switch And The Key Is Turned.This Will Release The Tumbler From The Switch So The Tumbler Can Be Pulled Free. Then Unplug The Wires And Remove The Old Switch.

A Steering Column-mounted Ignition Switch Is Separated From The Tumbler. It Is Normally About Halfway Down And On Top Of The Steering Column. To Remove This Type Of Switch, Remove The Fasteners Holding The Steering Column To The Dash. This Will Let The Column Drop Down So You Can Replace The Ignition Switch.

My ignition is stuck in locked position and it ownt turn over


It sounds like the classic "switch needs replacing". You only need the tumbler replaced. Before installing the new tumbler take it and your door key to your local locksmith and they can key the new tumbler to work with the old key. This saves you from have to have two different keys.

Oldsmobile 2001 intrigue Ignition main the key will not turn


Possible fix for the year of car is a worn key or tumbler or both. Check with Olds with your car vin number to cut a new key. If it's the tumbler, it will have to be re-pinned with new pins by locksmith or replaced with new tumbler. Rare occasions the turning of steering wheel frees the steering locks pressure hold on ignition tumbler. New tumbler can be reset to match door so as not to have two different keys.
