The ignition lock in my Daughters '81 300D began giving problems. I messed with the lock and finally got it to turn. Once it turns, as long as I leave the key in the switch, everything is fine. Once I take the key out I have to jimmy with it for awhile until it turns again.

I took the lock cylinder out of a parts car. The cylinder worked perfectly in the parts car, but the problem did not go away in the 300D after changing the lock.

Am I faced with replacing the entire steering column to correct this?

Thanks for any help offered,
