Exclamation 1990 e30 ignition cylinder problems

i broke the electrical hook up off of my cylinder where your key goes.
any ideas how to repair it or to get the plastic pieces inside to mesh up to actually work again?

You'll have to remove the dash trim under the steering column and remove the ignition assembly. depending on what broke you may have to replace the whole assembly.

For an E30 I'm not sure. Try the Haynes manual PDF download.
