Well I got the steering lock out steering colum. I ground the locking pin until the assembly came out since I couldn't get the key to turn. Semi good news is that the same lock mechanism is in my dead 87 "190 2.5 Turbo diesel.

Question should I be able to pull the connector plug on the end of the ignition switch with the tumbler still in place or will I have to start cutting.


The plan is to use the steering lock and tumbler from the 190 and get a matching tumbler for the E300D, so I do not have to dig into and change all the locks over!

You're going to wish you'd never turned it to "lock" when it didn't want to go. Wilton got lucky, attached his key to a vibrating detail sander and buzzed the cylinder wafers into the 'unlocked' position one last time so he could remove
the cylinder.
