Sipea Neiman ignition switch dissassembly
« on: May 17, 2022, 08:01:07 PM »
Hello folks. I lost the key for my Ď75 850t and removed the Sipea Neiman ignition switch with the intention of pulling the tumbler to bring to a locksmith to get a key made, but there is a spring loaded pin from the tumbler that is engaged in a hole in the ignition housing that I canít push in to release tumbler. Am I right to assume that you actually canít remove it without the key? If so, do I have any options other than replacing the switch? Many thanks, Paul

Pretty sure you need the key to depress that spring loaded pin.

Here's some information that might help (or not).

Thanks ACC. I already reached out to Greg and he said he thought it was possible, but has never done it. P
