Frequently Asked Questions
Will you need to replace the cylinder of my ignition too?
Although we understand this is a big concern, we can't always answer this question until we see your car in person.
Several considerations go into the decision of whether we need to replace an ignition after removing a stuck or bent key from inside of it. A big determining factor when we assess this decision is looking to see the extent of the key breakage as well as the how deep the broken pieces are within the ignition.
It will be easier for us to extract a key and not have to replace the ignition when the broken pieces are visible and closer to the top of the key slot opening.
When the pieces of the broken key are towards the top of the opening for the ignition, our skilled automotive locksmith can usually extract them easily and won't have to consider replacing your ignition.
However, we will likely need to replace the ignition if you apply a lot of force to your key or ignition and it results in the key breaking inside of it.
That is because the firm pressure can cause damage inside of the ignition cylinder that we're unable to repair.
It's important to work with the professional professional locksmith technicians rather than attempt to extract your own key. We are conveniently located here and will have someone at your location as quickly as possible.
