if you can get the old key out of the lock, It shouldn't be a big deal to get another made as long as all of the cuts are on the piece that actually broke off.

if you take the lock off of the car, will probably be a lot easier to deal with.

Make sure you spent the extra $2 and get yourself at least 2 extra keys for safe keeping . :thumbup:

Ok..get some Krazy Glue..the stuff that bonds instantly..and get a popsickel stick..glur the tip of the stick to the flush break of the key..Even though it says only like 30 seconds..put pressure on it for about two minutes to make sure it's fully bonded. Then Pull..it should work ;) Hope it helps.

Glad you got it out in the "Conventional" way :p Actually that Popsical idea came from talking to Craig Lieberman (Consultant on both of "The Fast and the Furious" Movies(He chose the cars and did all the work and ideas for them)) on the topic.
