The ignition switch is pretty standard, similar to other British cars. You 
should be able to order a key and tumbler from Moss Motiors or Victoria 
British for an MG Midget or MGB. Use the point of a test light  or ice pick 
to depress the little button on the side, grasp the tumbler with a vice 
grips and pull it out. The new one just pops in to replace it.James Dean,
