Key lost or will not turn in your ignition switch? Is it panic time? No, you do not need to get a big drill and try to drill out the tumbler. That is the worse thing you could do! With the tools included in this kit along with the video class, Kent will show you how to methodically remove the instrument cluster, lower the steering column, locate and grind the locking pin with this flexible shaft grinding tool, remove it from the steering column and replace it will a new or rebuilt unit. He will even show you how to remove the security type electrical switch without damaging it.
This video does not cover repairing or overhauling the steering lock assembly. We have found that is beyond the scope of most DIY owners. Most of these old locks are worn out internally and even if you are able to replace the tumbler - it may not fix the root problem. We do offer complete new and improved steering lock assemblies for all W123 sedans, coupes, and wagons. Please see related products below:
