:confused:i was on here a couple of weeks ago reading up on a stuck key/ignition barrel on my mate's 190e 2ltr.Unfortunately i had to do it the hard way and replace the whole top half of the steering column/barrel and everything from a breakers yard-£40.I saw a thread that had pictures of the back of the ignition switch with a wiring guide of what goes where but i cant find it again.I'm probably being thick but can anyone tell me who/where i can get it as i cant even find it using the search thingy.Both myself and my mate would be so grateful if anyone could.:bowdown:

Sorry to hear you had to fix the infamous 190E ignition switch the hard way. I experienced the same thing with my first 190E purchase, the first day I bought it....that was years ago and I now change the tumbler on any other 190E, the first/second time it starts acting up. The tumblers/key can be had for about $35

anyway, as to the wiring, I will be pulling 2 dashes over the next couple of days and if you do not find what you need, I will get the info off one of these cars for you...lust let me know [email protected]

ps I needed the same info way back when and got it from Potomac MB out of Jacksonville Fl, they part cars and sell on e-bay...and are very nice
