I'm having problems turning the ignition key in my '92 500SL so I guess it's the infamous ignition tumbler. I am in no way a DIYer so I need to get a general idea of the cost before I call my mechanic. The key will eventually turn if you jiggle it and it shuts off fine and the key comes out ok. I know it's a problem with the older Mercedes and I don't want to get stranded!

Just call a MB Dealer and ask them, that should give you some idea of cost.

Buy/order the ign. lock assembly from MB
Comes with key.
Go to an indie or locksmith to have it installed.
Less then an hr.
Or go to the stealer, but you new that. Lol.
