Do I need to replace the whole ignition lock tumbler?
The little rubbery flanges or ears that stick out next to the key on my 06 CTS's ignition are all chewed up and broken. The problem is purely cosmetic, but it's annoying to see/feel every time i turn on the car.
I popped out the lock tumbler and it looks like the rubber part that's torn is just molded onto the rest of the lock. Do I need to replace the whole tumbler in order to replace this little rubber flange? I've heard that is expensive and involves other replacements too, because the keys are microchipped.
Anybody know of a way to fix/replace the silly little rubber bits without buying a new set of keys?

Just wondering..how did they get all chewed up? You get a little angry when it malfunctioned and locked your key in one day? Haha
