[DMCForum] Re: Dude, where's my key? Was: What was I thinking?



Word is, you can get a lock smith to pull the piece out. They have 
tools that can hold the tumblers out of the way to pull the piece out.

If it -can't- be done, I'll replace the ignition switch, be 2 key for 
a while, then replace the door cylinders. Or something.
