Yesterday I managed to snap (go knows how) the key in my ignition barrel , luckily I have spare keys so I can lock and unlock the vehicle fine. But, there is the rest of the key in the bottom of the ignition barrell. The truck started up fine with the other half of the key with a bit of jiggling about. But now I cannot start the truck, the key will not turn, just cant get the spot where it frees all the pins inside the ignition barrell. Anyway, options are,
1) Should I replace the whole barrell?
2) Should I try and fish the other half of the key out and what can I do to do this?
3) Has anyone done this before that could help me? Looked on youtube and there are a few videos but I will need to buy an extractor tool/lockpick set.
The vehicle is a 1994 Vitara
