DRILL?! whered you get that idea? woudln't that kinda destroy the whole thing?I have wiggled the steering wheel while trying to turn the key that doesnt seem to help. i have sprayed some ford lock penetrating oil in it also but i still is like its the wrong key. is my only other option to drill it out?
Dude, before taking it apart, have you tried to push the release button while turning it (assuming your Cressida has a key-release button). I had a 1990 Camry with the exact same problem, and I almost got desperated before I tried that trick...it worked! I hope it works for you tooHow do i take it apart if i cant turn in to acc. position to get it apart? every book i have looked in says i have to be able to turn the key to get ign. lock cylinder apart or to remove ignition switch. since i cant turn it i got no idea what next. i have had to drill some lock cylinders out of fords before i just didnt want to do that if i dont have to.
