I had this issue with my 1988 760 Turbo Intercooler Wagon. I ended up drilling the lock cylinder which is no easy task. You would need to source a lock cylinder with keys. The lock cylinder interchanges with 1988-1990 760, 1991-1992 940 SE, and 1991-1997 960/ 1997-1998 S90/V90. The ignition key also fit the doors on my 760. I replaced my door lock cylinders with parts from a 1991 740 (no more issue getting keys copied for my doors.
