How do I get a key made

I recently acquired an 88 190E from a towing company by ways of a lien sale. The car had no ignition switch and no key for the doors. I replaced the ignition with a new key but how to I get a key made for the door locks without having to replace the locks?
Do I take off the lock and bring it to a locksmith?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to BenzWorld! You can order a key from your local Mercedes dealer, by providing your VIN and proof of ownership.
