lock cylinder removal

The lock cylinder must be made of hardened steel. Carbon-tipped drill bits have no effect on it. Any other suggestions? The lock cylinder is in the dashboard, not the steering column.Can I take apart the dashboard and pry it out from behind?

What is the year and vehicle? If you give good information, you will get helpful responses. We can't tell if you have a Willys Jeep or an old Corvette. Big difference in how you'd work on it!

IT's the ignition lock cylinder? Most vehicles will not let you turn the ignition all the way off unless the transmission is in Park. Or Reverse M/T. check the linkage adjustment.

I'd suggest you get a service manual before trying to pry it out!

How many posts on the same vehicle???? Please keep one post per vehicle or problem.

Bail out and have a locksmith handle it. Cheaper in the long run.

Get used to paying and paying dearly with an old European car like this. When they get old, they start to soak you like this .
