Good thought rogerhtc28...but most keys are either stainless steel or brass these days...Not that I have a better answer----except if you can run a small wood/sheet metal screw in beside the broken-off part..gently..and extract all at once. I only answer that b/c I had a locksmith do that on a truck I had

Turn the ignition to the "RUN" position and push the release button through the hole on the steering column cover and remove the cylinder. With the cylinder out, return it to the "OFF" position and rap it a couple of times on a table or block of wood. The key piece should fall right out. Take the replacement key, turn the cylinder to the "RUN" position, reinstall it and turn it to the "OFF" position to lock it in place.

Tracy's got the trick. If that doesn't work, try some wd 40 then turn the switch upside down and tap. I got one out with the wd 40 method, but I had to use a vacuum cleaner with the narrow corner attachment to suck the thing out while holding it upside down
