2005 chrysler? Oh boy that could get interesting. I know the 300 model the key is specific to the car and requires a good set of forms to even get another one. Forget the locksmith have car towed to dealer and let them fix it.

Broken key

I heard Clickand Clack, the guys on car talk, tell a girl who had the same problem to get some super glue and put a dab on the end of the broken key, if possible and put the other end you have in hand against it to glue it back together. Let it totally dry and then pull the key (and broken part) out.

Pray the super glue works!! Stupid expensive repair. The dash has to be broken to get access if not. 2K at dealer. Still 1K plus aftermarket. Gotta love Mercedes.

This thread is a year old, he must have figured it out right? It would be nice to hear from him and hear the outcome.

I once broke my only key off in the door, luckily there was a slight big sticking out that I was able to grab onto with vice grips.You might want to try that, but if there's no meat sticking out to grab onto, you could try a very strong magnet if it's an OE dealer key made of steel.Or you must hire Locksmith for the new key.

If the key has been broken inside then having help from the locksmith is the best option. They know how to take the key out without breaking or damaging the lock.

Locksmith can deal with it well but if we talk about car locks dealer is the prominent option for sure.

Never use glue with locks and recommend using locksmith help to fix the door lock.
