4714Key snapped inside door keyhole!
- Sep 21, 2006Yesterday, while opening my 88 E28, I apparently turned the key before
sticking it in completely and the key snapped inside. Luckyly, I had
a spare... inside the glove compartment!!
After thinking about it, the solution was simple. I pushed the piece
of the key into the cylinder with the house keys and turned it and
Voila! The car opened.
Now I have a problem, how do I remove the broken piece now? The car
can now be opened by almost any flathead screwdriver and almost any key!!!
I guess the whole lock cylinder has to come out from inside the door,
right? Anyone everhad this problem?
