Post Key broke in ignition :(
So I just recently picked up a Vino 125 from my buddy. The key has been kinda hard to turn in the ignition and just this evening it snapped off inside it. Anyone know the easiest/cheapest way to fix it? Is it possible to disassemble the front panel and access the lock to push the key out? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated :)

well by the time you take the body panels off and get the assembly out and taken to a lock smith to see if he can do anything with it you are proably better off just replacing it is ony 30 or 50 dollars (they list 2 diffrent parts on cheap cycle a steering lock and a key set)

So I called the dealership and they quoted me $220 installed to replace the lock and key....that just wasn't an option.

I opened up the front panel...removed the ignition and found that the electrical part that attaches to the bottom can just be turned with a screw driver...which got me mobile and able to get it back home. Then I was able to disassemble the ignition and get the key out. Now I just need to get a new key. Can most locksmiths cut one for me? Any idea on the cost?

I got a half tank of scootin left till I run outta gas since it is a locking gas cap :(

Why not just take the registration and your ID down to the dealership and have them cut you a new key from the factory code? That's part of the services they have. One caveat, you are the registered owner?

Well I am not the registered owner yet as I just got it from my buddy and only paid him half of it so far. I have a bill of sale and the registration so that might work. If all else fails I can have my buddy go with me.

Then take him with you, along with the registration, and head to the dealership for a new key. Shouldn't be more than $15 for the whole shebang.
