 Broken Key In Ignition Switch
ey guys, I just joined this forum again, I believe my old username was usnmazdamx3 or something like that. Anyway, My old key broke off in my ignition switch in my 1993 mazda mx-3 GS, and I really have no idea hwo to get it out. A lock smith is way too expensive. So, does anyone have ANY tips or tricks to getting out a broken key? oh, and it is about an inch in there, so I cant get it with pliers or anything. Thank you :D

Same deal but take the fish hook and straighten it then slide it in and try to catch the cut edge.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

:D Sounds like something I would see..."Hey, so the key got stuck..we tried some JB weld to stick on the other side and when it dried the key wont turn. You think you can get it out??" -My customers....what an interesting breed.

**OP, I would try the hook and see if you can get it out of there.
