NOTE: If the lock cylinder/key is sticking or jamming, spray lock cylinder with Mercedes Benz lock cylinder grease (part number 001 989 26 51 10). If the complaint cannot be eliminated, replace lock cylinder and key.

Removal :

Press out escutcheon (36a) using a small screwdriver.
Remove coil for transponder from lock cylinder. (Only applicable to vehicles with stage 2a [DAS 2a] drive authorization system as of 8/96)

Push sleeve (011) onto the cap (36b), turn lock cylinder to position "1" with the key. (Special Tool Part number 202 589 00 14 00 - see Tools and Equipment
Unlock the lock cylinder by turning the cap (36b) 90 and remove.

I am not sure if it is model 202 or 170. Does that make sense?
