You can order the correct tumbler by VIN from the stealer. It comes with a new key that will match your car.

I have a new tumbler and key on order, but I am not sure it will match my current car. May have to have it re-keyed to get things to match doors and trunk?

Max,

I got hung up trying to remove the steering column and had to grind the steering lock retaining pin. Normally this pin can be pushed in if the tumbler is in the run position. Since I couldn't turn the key from the off position, I had to grind the pin. This allowed me to then pull the steering lock assembly and try to get the key to work of the steering column, which it didn't and I then used an abrasive wheel to cut the steel protective ring. Then I had access to the release pin holes to remove the tumbler set.

I will add to this later as I am getting ready to travel to Seabrook, NH for work.

Regards,

Bob, explain this again? How did you get up to the point that you could
use the abrasive cut-off wheel? I think you said that you removed the
entire steering column?

I'm going to have a similar fight with the "95 124 Cabriolet, keys are
missing and the ignition tumbler / lock assembly looks like it has been
broken free of the steering column in a failed attempt to steal the car. I
have the steering column from Wilton's '87 300D, plan is to install that
with a new tumbler matched to the VIN so one key opens doors and trunk as
well as operates the ignition.

Thanks,
Max
