HELP!!?? 1993 300E

Hi all,
I have a 1993 300E 2.8. This afternoon I shut it off and the key turned a little past the "off" position to the left of the dot. They key would not turn after that and was very hard to get out. The lock cylinder is still in that position and a locksmith could not get it back. As a result, I had it towed home. Does anyone have any suggestion of how to fix it? Or should I just break the lock cylinder? If so, how do I do that? Thank you for everyone's time here.

there are lot of topics about ignition tumbler replacement and they seems to the same problem regardless the model. You will find them by forum search.
Mercedes is having ingenious steering wheel blockade that with lock tampering goes into permanent mode, so this is not a job for DIY unless you are ready to cut off the blockade and drive without it.
Take the car to the dealer and mortgage your house.
