The Lock pin is used to met the US MVSS requirement to sell in the USA. ie -lock the trans, or Strg. Don't think a Service center would do it. You would need the Vehicle Service manual to help guide you to remove it. Most have special J-# tools to remove air bag,ect. The Design intent was to make it difficult to remove or defeat. (Thus the name Lock pin)
Some new Vehicles can met the MVSS req by electronic means.
