How it works should be a mystery, but you will find few pictorials. Most of blockades works on the same principals, so search other models with mechanical keys as well.
The main issue is that while hiring a butcher for tumbler replacement, you will face steering wheel blockade going into PERMANENT mode.
I can only guess this is what you have cut off by now?
Not switching into gears can be messed up linkage or neutral safety switch.
I consider MB blockade top extreme for DIY jobs and since you have butchered job, very likely the only good advise would be take it to a dealer.
