WOO HOO getting my new MB key hopefully that helps the tumbler?

i ordered a 12 dollar brand new mercedes key from the dealership and its coming today, i recently unstuck my tumbler and it turns over. but with a new key, will it help it not getting stuck anymore? i would love to drive it but when i think i was hotwiring it, it used alot of battery so that is dead but i will jump it. and heres what i need, so far, i ordered new swaybar for the rear suspenion, new key, and now i need a new battery. stuff just comes and comes. well talk to you guys later.

oh yea and i need a new antennta, and a bodyshop. Anyone wants to see the nice dent on the roof?

TX76513 is right, you will need to replace your tumbler. Follow the directions at Diesel Giant. I used a very small Allen wrench instead of a paper clip to depress the internal locking mechanism and then unscrew the collar.
