What do you think about this video?

Will. B: Thank you! Very clear and easy to follow. Great video, Thumbs up!!!

Roberto Bertulfo: Thanks, Loud and clear. very direct.

355LTM: what a wonderful steps a mother freaker ruin change the key barrel and damage it the light alarm and works when i turn on the lights

Owe Ostrem: Very nice film. A year ago I had the same problem at two W124 at the same time. Reason is probably that because we had two more or less identical cars, we sometimes used wrong key..:-). The first I tried to drill out, no success (still driving without key). Second I deliverd to a mercedes repair, success but costly.

Brendon Wright: @solstingr WOW! It's awesome that you know that!

John Hill: Thanks for that. I'm just about to remove the barrel on my 1986 500 SEC. You have saved me some heartache. Cheers. John. Now to find some wire!

Cameron Hartshorn: @solstingr Your steeling wheel lock seized.

Sirrom0206: I have a Chrysler crossfire. It uses the same Mercedes system. I ordered a new tumbler and maintenance key from the dealer (i didn't see your video until after ordering). I forgot to insert the blk cap between the key & tumbler BEFORE reinstalling the tumbler back into the lock assembly. Even though the blk cap is not on, I cannot get the tumbler back out. The key will not turn because the blk cap is not on the locking assembly. How do I get the tumbler out?

Tony Palackal: Thanks! This was a great help.

Jameson Childress: I have ordered the switch, but I can't get mine to turn on my 91 300D 2.5. What should I do?

rickinnev: excellent,,thanks, I just about wasted $34.95 plus $7.50 shipping for some Tool when this will do the job perfectly..

abraxas941: thanks for this video..... Couldn't start my 240d. I knew it was a "key problem". I didn't know how to take it out..... I took it out (used a "biggish" needle) and found that it is broken inside. Going to order a new one. Problem solved Thanks mate

georgessify: j'ai une vito N° chassis: WDFC3970313202802 Il est à 72996Km et le moteur tourne quand on agit sur la clé mais ne démarre pas. Nous avons changé le rail car le star diag marquait baisse de pression du rail mais tjrs le même probleme. Qlq"un pour m"aider

Thomas Stanley: @Ostreom yeah. i don't know how they got just the cylinder out, but they did (so i didn't have to replace the whole assembly). i think the purpose of this video is ONLY if your key is broken and the cylinder still turns. seems like you should be able to drill the whole thing out, and just put a new one yourself though.

lowroader: Thanks, very very helpful.

LITWIK: thank's for movie. Year ago In my w124 I drilled in the ignition..

bobo Bogdan: thanks man. Now i go to try this in my Mercedes Sprinter 2010 year. ty again

pat1981lux: Now i know how to steal a Mercedes

Drew Michael: thank you! hope this works on a 1992 300d! Just as of today it locks up and wont turn unless I fight with the steering wheel and the key at the same time! I know this is common, not sure if changing ignition will fix it or not?

mansoorpatel87: hey buddy nice work but can u help i got a mercedes w124 diesel and i lost the key how can i remove the ignition barrel i seriously need help on this budyy pls help the place u inserted the pin i have two like tht am confused and does the iginition shud be on radio activate mode is tht neccesary

boyuchuadaniel: i think prople should make videos on how to steal a car made in 2011

rockblockcity: GREAT MUSIC ON THE RADIO!!! DEAD KENNEDYS, HALLOWEEN........

Brendon Wright: @gsa88 Wow, good eye.

IraHayesIraHayes: @solstingr Try rocking the car while turning the key and moving the steering wheel...

Thomas Stanley: this would be super helpful, but my problem is : the ignition won't go to ACC. the steering wheel is locked and so is the ignition. (they seem to be connected somehow, as when i move the st. wheel the ignition body also moves slightly.) i almost broke my only key, but was able to get copies, still no luck.

Char Noonan: @Ostreom I have this same issue now. What was your result? I was hoping to get the key out and use the alternate. Help!

Owe Ostrem: @solstingr hi. How did you manage to fix ? My key is broken with a part stuck in the hole, and it's not possible to to turn the to ACC or start. But for some reason I can turn the outer part of the tumbler so I manage to slide in a pin in the small hole. But it's not possible to screw off the black part and release the tumbler...

bigpappa99ify: Nice thNks

Owe Ostrem: @solstingr ok thank you. It seems that I have to do the same. I have drilled out more or less the whole cylinder, but the remainong part of cylinder is still stuck. But now I can start the engine with a screwdriver and drive the car to the garage :)

Shuswap26: You are the effin MAN! Thank you for posting this!

mjname: Man is that easy if you know what to do!!! Thanks for your time and knowledge making this video!!! VERY HELPFUL!

Thomas Stanley: is that the Dead Kennedys? it is! nice.

Zakarya Saleh: Thank you very much

MercMad: drill is the only option

JoeJoeyJose: Stumbled upon this video and my key isn't even broken. Interesting stuff though, I love how easy things were to fix back then. I have a semi-new SLK and any little light comes on and I have to take it to a special Mechanic and all that. On my 300D however, I was able to fix a vacuum leak with a freaking thorn from a tree xD

Taleh Babirov: Usta necesen

Tony Fernandez: Hi my problem is with out the key?

VAJOWLES: Very helpfull vid, WAYYYYYYYY better than a hanes manual!!!!

Thomas Stanley: @Ostreom i took it to the mercedes dealership. the cylinder was seized. all better now. just thought i might be able to do it myself. seems the German trained technicians are better than me. lol. cheers!
