W210 Ignition Switch Stuck 1997

Help. I work nights and on my way home I took a nap. When I woke up, my nightmare began. I could not turn the key and had the car towed home. I have tried most things to turn the key to the 1 position, no joy. Can I remove the ignition switch with the lock in 0 position.?? I have tried to press the pins; I cannot seem to go deep enough . How do I remove the steering lock and the threaded pin with a nut?.. Any suggestions I need my car back. Please help.

Your key in switch has to turn to position 2, ive used an air hammer and lightly vibrated body of lock many times to unstuck key, but first try a new key if possible, you would have to remove panels and steering wheel trim covers to get a air hammer up there

"Some" other owners have clamped their keys in Sanders to vibrate the
Key/"Leaves" in the ignition tumbler to get the needed #2 Position.
