Ignition lock
« on: 14 June 2018, 12:20:19 »

My ignition lock is beginning to get slightly sticky and I want to follow the Guide on here to refurbish it, but I am nervous (scared!) to tackle my one without at least having a practice on an old one first.
Has anyone got an old barrel that I can f*ck up experiment on, please?
I assume I will need the key, too, in order to disassemble it?

You could buy a new one for a tenner. There's some chance of reassembling that so it works ;)

I've done a couple now Ron, it is quite straight forward with the guide. Just beware of losing any of the tiny springs when removing and replacing the sliders.

I done mine by the guide as well Ron ,   bit fiddly & some VERY  small parts . Read the guide fully & also further guides from Shackeng & Fuse19 regarding steering lock .

Seem to recall I had a 'mare getting the steering lock assembly back in   :-\

Thanks gents, that's why I want to play with something non-critical first - my fingers are not of the delicate ladylike sort!  :(

The only things you need to know are not to pull the key out of the barrel unless you've got the whole lot in a plastic bag to collect the bits!

.. and, when you do, don't get the order in which the levers insert muddled up.

Other than that, it's not a bad job. :y
