ignition cylinder replacement
Key won't turn to acc. Will not turn at all. Also,don't see whole where the paper clip goes to release cylinder so it can be removed.
According to this video, the key has to be in the accessory position in order to remove the cylinder. I would spray it full of WD-40 and wiggle it until it finally moves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vREcs5HG41E
Thanks, but we tried the lubricant and it didn't work.
Well I guess you will now have to call a locksmith or just drill it out. Do you have a second key? Maybe it's your original key that's worn out.
