vifa84 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hello,
I have a 1992 525I with a bad key cylinder. I took the column apart checked the electrical piece and it's ok. The key cylinder is bad as it doesn't turn the shaft but I can't really see how to pull it out. It looks like I might need a special tool to do it. Could someone help me out? I hope you don't have to pull the whole assembly which is attached to the steering.

If you look where the key goes in around the edge of the barrel these a cut-away this take a 2mm pin but you can use an Allen key you have to turn the key to between off and terminal R then the pin will go all the way in and you can pull the barrel out by the key

I found the cut away your talking about and I tried my smallest allen key and it is a little too big. I wonder if a paper clip would work? Thanks for the info.

Where is terminal r? Do you mean run? I tried a paper clip and it doesn't seem to go in until the key turns almost to start. It slips in about an inch or so but I can't pull out the cyllinder. Any other idea's. I'll go to the auto parts store and see if I can find a smaller allen key.
