1988 winnebago itasca phasar

Unread postby bruss777 » Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:23 am

I recently broke off my key in the ignition. I am able to start the RV but must either find someone to get that key out or have a new starter installed. What is involved with a new starter and can I get one at somewhere like Autozone instead of having to order one from someone like Mobility RV? Thanks anyone.

A locksmith will be able to remove the key. Regards, Scott

Since you can start and drive the vehicle you can avoid an expensive charge for a locksmith to come to your location. The actual charge for one to remove the broken key shouldn't be a lot when done in the locksmith's parking lot at his location. And you should need neither an ignition switch (which is where they broken key sits) nor a starter (which is totally not involved with a broken key). Otherwise, you might first try using a very thin pair of jeweler's needlenose pliers which MIGHT be able to grab the broken key stub if you try carefully and won't hurt anything if they can't grab it..

If you have enough left, you can use crazy glue on the free end and attach it to the end in the switch. I have used this before but you have to be careful and only use a very little amount. Hold it tight until it is properly set then gentle pull straight out.

Sharp 90 degree picks work if you have about an 1/8th of an inch left..need to be very sharp and 90. Place the 90 up hard on the stub and rotate the handle back gently....
