Unfortunately, I had my car broken into and extensive damage was caused to the ignition lock, as someone tried to start the car with a screwdriver, which they kindly left behind.

I have been unable to turn the ignition lock and the steering lock is operative.

Is there any other way of unlocking the steering lock without causing any damage and any way of taking the ignition lock out?

Or more importantly, is there anyway of taking the steering lock off and keeping it off so that I can tow the car to the nearest garage.

wow I'm sorry man. Mine was recently broken into as well.

try a flat bed to get it towed. but other than that all i can think of would be to try replacing/repaing the ignition barrel to unlock the column.. there are removal instructions around here someplace.
