New member from Aussie - W140 ignition switch

I am a resident of Bungendore, on the outskirts of the Australian Capital Territory, home of the capital city, Canberra.

I have 2 mercs, a C180 (1999) and an S500L (1994 )(L for long wheel base).

In the past I have owned a 300D, a C190D and a 300SE.

Spare parts in Aus are very expensive but I have been buying from at prices 50 to 70% off Aus prices (even allowing for expensive air freight) with delivery in 6 to 7 days.

My present problem with my W140 is removal and replacement of the ignition switch. How do you get it out?
