126 Door cylinder removal help.

I've read all the DIY's I can find, but I haven't found one that tells me how to get this jammed cylinder out of the door handle. All I see is some pins and one allen head, do I need to remove all of these? The key will not turn the cylinder in either direction. If someone could look at the pics and tell me what to remove I'd appreciate it. Or point me to a thread that does. I found the thread to get the handle out but not one for the cylinder.

Maybe a silly question but are you sure you have the correct key?

Nope, not a silly question. Just bought the car and didn't check all the locks before we brought it home. This key works in the ignition and the passenger door and trunk, so I'm guessing it's the right key. Vacuum locks work perfectly from everywhere they are supposed to except the drivers door, because I can't turn the key.

i had the same problem when i bought my 420 SEL; thought the PO might have switched out the driver's lock, but it turned out just to be dirt in the cylinder. cleaned it out real good with electronics cleaner, then let it dry and hit it with some dry lube (not graphite!!!). works like designed now; those high security keys are very sensitive to dirt inside the cylinder.

BTW what vehicle is that? must be a GenII

It's a 86 300SDL. I should have mentioned that in the original post. How do I get the cylinder out of the door handle?

One way to remove cylinder for door handle.

Remove two roll pins, maybe 3 if needed. See picture 1. One is one sided so had to drill out a little, tap threads, screw in screw and pull out screw with roll pin. See picture 2.
Remove screw holding drive pin which is the chrome lever circling lock cylinder with the horn on the rear of car end which goes into a loop in the door latch when in car. See picture 3.
Drive out pin that holds drive pin and allows it to pivot. This allows drive pin to move a little so lock cylinder can be removed. See picture 4.
My lock had 3 broken leaves. See picture 5. Removed them. Reassembled lock cylinder, handle installed in car.
Take many pictures of the lock cylinder so you can figure out how pieces go back together.
Had an issue with the correct space between drive pin and the one screw that screws door handle to door near rear of door. Had to pry mine to about 34 mm to fit drive pin to drive pin receiver in door. Measure it with a small ruler in the door and loosen brass allen screw and pry drive pin. 1985 300SD. Best of luck.
