Exclamation 1976 240d ignition trouble

Hey all! My igntion switch finally gave out. its 76 240d auto. The switch WILL not move to 1 or 2. Its jammed. I tried everything. What are my options? At this point ill rig it till i find another switch or can afford to have it fixed. This is my daily driver. Can i drill it? Bust the lock? ANYTHING?? Thanx for the help guys!!

You can try spraying WD-40 in the lock, sometimes it helps. If not, drilling is the other option.
