W210 ignition lock cylinder removal help needed

I searched to no avail... I have read all about the older cars but the W210 lock cylinder must be diffferent than the rest..

I have removed the trim ring, now I have a loose fitting lock cylinder with a black cylindrical cover on it with no visible means of removal. How do I proceed to remove this cover to access the two holes I've read about to get the release tool ( coat hanger) into the lock? (my key is hanging up in the lock).

TIA,
-Tom

If it is like the 1995 the ring should "unscrew" after you release the latch. The key has to be in the #2 position for it to turn with the latches are released. Oh yea, I don't think you will ever do it with a coat hanger - too big in diameter. Use a good sized paper clip.

I can't get AT the ring, there is a cover that looks like a 35m film can with a 1/2" hole in the bottom that covers the lock cyl, the key goes thru the hole. It is DIFFERENT from your'n!

Thanks anyway and happy memorial day to you!

The W210 1996 thru 1997 requires a special tool to remove the ring. That is the same tool that is needed for the C-class W202.
The part number is 202-589-00-14 & is $100.
You must push the black ring IN & turn counter-clockwise 1/4 turn with the key in position 1.

Does anybody have pictures of the tool and is it possible to remove it without the tool?

Thanks
