This morning I was greeted with key problems! I attempted to insert my key into the ignition, and found the small, "door" inside the lock would not move out of the way, as I believe it is supposed to. I moved it around with a small screwdriver, and got myself to work, but if I was not at home, I would have been stuck someplace!! Do any other W126 owners have this problem? Seems like there should be a little spring pulling it back or something like that? Car is a 1989 560SEL, 128k miles. I searched for ignition problems, and not much. I note there is a special tool required to pull the ignition switch, but can one pull the front off the lock? (light gauge metal "cover"?) Thanks for the help!
