In the presence of moisture.... Gorilla glue foams and then hardens.

I guess this was some kind of sick joke because I don't think there is a way of getting it out of there if it's hardened. How long has it been in there ?

You are probably looking at a new tumbler.

There is nothing I know of that dissolves cured Gorilla glue. Once that dried in the tumbler it was permanent.

I believe that ignition switch/tumbler is held in with safety bolts that need to be cut. I could see a $250-300 job.

"Ex" boyfriend I would hope. Also factor into cost that replacement key/computer may need to be programmed and the tow to a garage..
