Unhappy bollocks

excuse my french, but that was the exact phrase i muttered as i turned the key in rear door only to find it snap right off.

while on the bright side, it does perfectly match the other snapped of key i have, i would like to be able to open my doors again

so two questions for the landy guru's on d90-source:

1. can take the key stub with the number printed on it and get one made from a landy dealer using the code?
2. any tips on removing a key stem from a lock?

You should still be able to get a key/key code from the dealer. I have had good luck removing broken keys from locks using a staightened out small paper clip with a bit of a hook on the end. Use it to snag the top part of the key.

To remove a broken key I use a broken off end of a jewelers' saw blade.

thanks for the tips... i tried the paperclip approach, but failed dismally... will give a jeweler saw a whirl, if no dice i guess i'll try and take the lock out and give it to a lock smith.

to close the thread:

i ended up taking the rear door apart and pulling the lock. i took it to Bulgers in Seattle for anyone that runs into this problem locally.... (http://www.bulgerlock.com/). For $30 they had the broken key out and a new key made from the fragments in no time. The originally quoted $160, but with the lock out it was much easier for them to work with.

Interestingly the new key is a Mazda blank... I ordered from steel defender body blanks from WCR and will get a better key made.

lesson learned.

Pump the lock cylinder full of Wurth HS2000 lube.
