After about and hour of trying to disassemble my rear hatch lock cylinder to remove a broken key that the previous owner left for me as a gift i'm throwing in the towel, I've tried everything i can think of at the moment but to no avail. Its from a 90 RC and its driving me to drinking. If anyone of you enlightened individuals would like to show me the way, it would be greatly appreciated. It has 2 slots on one side that seems to be the starting point to take it apart, i've tried prying, pulling, twisting, turning, squeezing, wd40 and yelling at it. It just sits and laughs right back at me :-\ Here are some pictures of what i'm dealing with :

Take it to a locksmith. You can't take off the bezel ring without ruining it. They have a tool that cuts it off, they do what they need to, then they crimp a new one on. How bad is the key in there? Is it rusted in there or jammed upside down or anything? If not, they can probably pull it out with a key hook (part of a pick set that looks like the tip of a fishhook with a very sharp barb on it) in about 3 seconds.
