    Dentist pick set. I use them at work to extract broken taps.

    Get the nice stainless steel ones. They will be really sharp and dig into the key.

    A locksmith is going to do the same thing I mentioned first. Then if all else fails he will remove the barrel from the ignition switch I would guess.

    :D Paperclips are made of flimsy mild steel. Stainless steel picks would have pulled it out really easy. Wal-Mart sells them. Just replying so anyone else facing this problem can see a solution.

    yea it was a struggle and I wanted to go buy some after work but kept trying in the meantime... they trick is this, on the top of inside the keyhole is a small tab which prevents the key from being wiggled out... I held it up with one paperclip and used the other to wiggle it out. yes it's flimsy and a b**** to get but it actually worked for me. thanks for the info tho
