My car got broken into and they destroyed the lock and tumbler. I have figured out how to hotwire my car to get it running, but have the problem of the steering wheel lock. Is there anyway to overcome this? I can rotate the key in the tumbler far enough to unlock it, but not enough to keep it from locking again (unless I put a pretty solid force, i.e. hold it as hard as I can, which can't happen, I drive a 5 speed). What I need to know is if there is some external way to override that bastard, so I can drive my car to raleigh, so I can get it fixed. sigh... why couldn't they have successfully taken the car?!
