So recently I ran into a stumped with it... My key/ignition and steering lock have failed me... The key wouldn't turn, steering wheel locked... So I went thru the procedure of taken down the bottom panel... Removing shift cable,removing ignition wiring AND FINALLY removing the whole plastic ignition.... Now I'm to thepoint wer u see the area were you can essentially stick a screwdriver in it to start it...
I'm stumped on how to actually get the car to start so I can jus have a Benz mechanic replace the tumbler... I know I'm pretty far already but it was a task removing all this... I tried pushing the 2 buttons on the side of the module(piece that can be turned w screwdriver) and turning it and no go I'm looking for sumthing, may b a lock or sumthing to release to able me to turn the module.. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THIS PLLLEASE HELP... THANKS GUYS ....

This part of the forum is for new member introductions and sadly not many people read the intro section so for best results ask you question on this link;
