Not quite the case. It's the casing that holds the tumblers that is
broken- this casing has a tab that sticks out the back end and turns the
electrical switchgear. My tab is broken.

Well, taking this a bit further, it would mean that I *could* play with
exchanging all tumblers with an ignition mechanical set that I don't
have the key for, but, as you wisely advise:

Far off?! I own two of the things... My current list includes:
control arm bushings on the q.
door-locks on both
front inner cv on the q
two ac-compressor fixes
two steering racks
But, we love'em.
Next car IS a adzam VPM to cart the kids. It's hard jamming two car
seats and an adult in the back of a 90 :)
