Snap Cap Style Ignition Tumbler Service and Replacement Deluxe Tool Kit w/ Extras

Service or replace your ignition tumbler sitting in your car with Kent's custom tools and FREE detailed video

If you have been around old Mercedes for any length of time, you have probably run into a problem with your ignition key starting to "stick" or one that does not turn.  This problem can leave you stranded and could cost hundreds of dollars to fix $$$. Kent feels that most of the problems are caused by total lack of lubrication! Have you ever heard of anyone just pulling out the tumbler to clean and lubricate it with the PROPER lubricant???  Simple lubrication can add years of life to your tumbler and lock assembly, keep you from getting stranded, and save you lots of money and headaches.

Product Details

Kent finally decided to produce a "tool kit" that would allow the owner to service and / or replace his own tumbler. The kit you see here is designed by Kent and made right in his own shop. Everthing is here to help you remove the key tumbler with the heavy black metal "SNAP TYPE CAP" that holds the tumbler inside the steering lock housing. Kent even designed a special emergency release wire tool that will help get those stubborn tumblers out of the steering locks (provided you can still turn your key!)

These include the 1984 to 1993 W201 190E and 190D. The 1986 to 1993 W124 260E 300CE 300D 300E 300TD 300TE and 400E. The 1994 and 1995 W124 E300 E320 and E420.
