Alright well my ignition tumbler has gotten finicky so I ordered a new one with keys off Autohaus. What I need to know is where in the down loadable service manual does it show how to remove and reinstall the ignition tumbler? I already made the special 2 pronged tool. Do you just insert that with the key at position 1 until it disengages everything and then pull the tumbler out with the key? And if so do you just install the new one in reverse order? Key in position one prong tool lined up slide tumbler in and then pull out pronged tool and it's good to go? I've been looking in the service manual and can't find it anywhere. Thanks.

I'm not worried about the matching key, plus I live about 78 miles from a dealer so I'd rather have it delivered to me rather than risk getting my car up there and then the tumbler completely failing, that would be my luck haha.
