It turns out that there's a chunk of key that's broken off in the ignition cylinder. So I still don't know for sure if I'll need a new key. But the P.O. drilled thru the shifter assembly into the cylinder.
Still having trouble getting the cylinder to slip out. It looks like it will if I also remove the dreaded reverse-interlock gear via the small circlip.
Some posts mention a code number on the trunk lock. Can that number be used to make another ignition key? Or will it simply make a duplicate trunk/door key?
Lastly, would it be a good idea to re-lube the inside of the shifter assembly? If so, with which kind of grease?
Any tips not already listed would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks and Think Spring.
