- Sep 21, 2006I have used a set of small hooked picks or tweezers to remove a broken key
before. That might do it. Otherwise, you are correct, remove the lock
cylinder and disassemble it on the bench.
Or, you can move to a no crime area and leave it alone! :)
Our van and truck both work with a screwdriver or ANY key! :(

Subject: [bmw e28] Key snapped inside door keyhole!
Yesterday, 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?
