1983 300D ignition tumbler.
Hi guys! I'm new to the board and was wondering if any of you could
help me out;
My Ignition Tumbler started sticking and being a pain a little while
back. It finally stopped working and I searched the boards and my
hanes manual to see what I could do about it.
I got the key turned over to Position I, and promptly inserted my
paperclip into the little release hole. But my problem is :
I turned the key in the wrong direction. Instead of turning the collar
counterclockwise, I turned the key and the tumbler itself clockwise.
It locked in this position and will turn about 45 degrees, but will
not turn past the point where I can stick the paperclip back in again.
(It's stuck between Positions I and II) Is there anything I can do,
save spend $600 having my mercedes guy tear out the whole assembly?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
