[DML] Re: ignition key woes

Removing the ignition cylinder is not that difficult. There are 2
tamperproof screws that you need to remove. Refer to H:03:01. After
you get the thing loose removing the broken piece of key is easy. In
fact if you go to a locksmith with the lock he will probably remove
the piece for the cost of cutting a new key. Once he removes the piece
he may be able to either decode it or copy it. If the column is out of
the car just grab the whole thing and take it to the locksmith, saves
the trouble of even removing the tamperproof screws! Bring the rest of
the  broken key too if you still have it. If your car is the 1 key
system bring the "vault door" too for a test fit.
