My switch was catching and became unable to turn, eventually. I tried to turn it to the right once to remove the cylinder but couldn't...my neighbor said to let him have a try and so he tried the "gone in sixty seconds" maneuver with a screwdriver and hammer. Needless to say, the cylinder is destroyed, and I don't want to spend the $$ to repair it at the shop. Any suggestions on how I can get my car going? Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the ignition ('87 Mercedes 420 SEL). Does anyone know how to remove the steering lock?
