Your outside temperature sensor is located in the front bumper behind the front license or number plate bracket. It is a silver shaft about the diameter of a pen about 1 1/2 inches long with a connecting wire

SOURCE: how to remove jammed ignition barrell from 1992,


you can access the ignition switch from underneath the dash, but it is easier to remove the steering wheel, then the instrument cluster. There are two basic elements to the ignition switch. The part that usually breaks down first is the front section, where the key goes into. You have to remove the entire unit from its bracket. Unplug the wire loom from the back of the housing. I believe there are two screws holding both sections together. Remove the screws and replace the unit. Then re-assemble.

Changing ignition barrel

The steering lock/ignition assembly is an armored item made of tool steel. To replace the barrel you will need to put the ignition key in position II and you will see a small hole in the silver surround . Inserting a thin pin into this hole pushes the catch aside and allows the key barrel to be extracted.

If there is no tiny hole on the face plate of the barrel you will need Mercedes to install your new barrel as it takes a special workshop tool to unscrew the key face plate.
