ignition barrel/key issues solved

I've just replaced my faulty ignition barrel (key would'nt turn) with a second hand unit complete with key. Barrel can be removed in situ by carefully drilling the tops of the shear head bolts.

After fitting, swap the transponder from the original key to the new key to disable the car's immobiliser. Also the original key will have to be retained for entering the car/central locking. Otherwise a complete lock set would need to be fitted.

Note my car does'nt have remote locking, but I would have thought the above would still apply for vehicles that do. A cheap fix for what otherwise could have turned into a very expensive problem !
