I must have sprayed 1/2 a can of Tri-Flow lubricant (which seems highly recommended for locks) into and around that lock cylinder over several days and it's still the same. The car's original keys (which are visibly worn) will not work in it, nor will the new key that I just purchased from the Saab service center.
On another site I found the following description of removing the lock cylinder, which sounds promising:
"The ignition barrel is one of the easiest jobs on the 9000 ! If you
pop off the lower shroud to the column you can then see the barrel quite
easily. On the bottom of the barrel is a very small hole ( approx 2mm)
Put the key into the barrel and turn to the right once (this will lock
the key into the barrel) Using a small hex key (or screwdriver etc)
push into the hole and with draw the barrel assembly."
However I've also run across people saying that installation is tricky to get right.
Too cold out now to do anything with it. Fortunately the old spare key from the locksmith is still working.
