Post 1994 c250 d - can't turn key

I think the lock cyclinder has colapsed maybe, the key slides in really easy, I can't turn the key, I've read that to change the cyclinder you need to have the key in position 1 to remove the lock cover, but as I can't turn it, I'm wondering what my other options are, it seem like a fairly complex process to remove the full ignition housing.

This really sux, I haven't owned the car very long .

Any help appreciated.

Use lot of WD40 and some vibration to turn the tumbler.
Some members used jigsaws, some went for the tools to wife's buduar.
