The Tumblers inside the Ignition Barrel of my XF Jammed. I called the locksmith to replace the ignition barrel...and as i recall he used a pin inside a small hole to pop the ignition barrel out of the assembly after he removed the steering wheel...

The reason i got a locksmith because i had no idea to get it out myself...

Anybody know the correct way about it??

Re: ignition woes

To get the barrel out you are supposed to put the key in and turn it to ACC and insert a paperclip or something similar and pull the barrel out.
