: I accidentally inserted my '95 Honda Accord key into the door lock of my '98 ///M Roadster. It went in about 3/4 inch and got stuck! Nothing I could do would make it release. After almost 2 hours of trying, I cut four thin strips of stainless steel shim stock and managed to insert them on each side and top and bottom of the Honda key. After almost two more hours of trying, many expletives, and a bloody finger, the tumblers finally released the Honda key. Now here is the hard part to confess. I did the same thing two weeks later. I went right for the shims and after an hour I finally managed to free the key again. So, if you own an Accord and an ///M, be careful which key you put in the ///M.
