Yesterday I was at a parts yard and one c124 had a good ignition tumbler + the key worked in one door lock. So I went ahead and removed the ignition tumbler assembly from it. Then when trying to remove the door lock there wasn’t enough room to get at the grub screw since it was close to another car.
So I asked the guys in the yard to move the car out a little with a forklift. To my utter disbelief in seconds they somehow managed to snap the key clean off the door lock in the process So I have a lovely genuine MB working tumbler assembly dated 2000 with no key
What are the chances I could sacrifice the ignition tumbler and drill it out etc? Put it in a vice and hammer a screwdriver in to get it turning for removal?
Any tips are appreciated - I’d sure love to salvage it and install a generic tumbler key just for a spare.
