Black Switch behind ignition replace help

hi guys,

you might have read some idiots tried to knick my car, but immobiliser stopped them. What dicks. I need to get a new ignition barrel. was gona go for a barrel and door handles off a mareva if possible? would the barrel fit?

its a 2.0 hgt 155. if not, will have to get barrel and locks off a bravo. Now do i need them off another 2.0 hgt 155? or any bravo? will keep the chip from the one blue key ive got now for the immobiliser.

the black switch behnid the ignition barrel is also broke from the screwdrivers they jabbed into it. How do you replave this part?

Will any black switch off a bravo fit, or again, does it have to be a 2.0 HGT 155? ive heard you need to grind through the security bolts. Is this true? because i think i'd set fire to everything if i tried that.

Help/suggestions most appreciated. Thanks

You've heard abit too much! shear bolts need few taps round with a chisel they come off easily.Any switch should fit.

any bravo brava or marea can be used as a donor for the barrel and switch. replacement is easier than you expect.

you can grind the tumblers down on the new barrel (with your old key inserted in the barrel) then it will match your old key. that way you dont need to replace your other locks (doors, boot, govebox).

Re: Black Switch behind ignition replace help

jug from what ive read your the man in here whos knows his ****, the above confirms this.

i didnt understand whcih bits you ment to grind down? when it arrives i may post a pic up.

also doing the clutch as soon as that arrives too. am sure ill have a thread load of questions.

i do infact,

can you replace clutch without getting hold of one of the beams that support the engine? it also says you need another beam when refitting the gearbox to raise / lower the box.

question is do you need any of these speciualist tools to replace clutch on a 2.0 155? if so which ones do i need to get hold of? cheers

Re: Black Switch behind ignition replace help

in the following pic the bits you can see sticking out the side of the barrel need to be ground away so they are flush with the barrel (with key inserted). there are tumblers sticking out on both sides.


assuming you wont have the car raised on a lift, and instead you will have it jacked up and on axle stands, then you can support the engine with a jack under the sump. use a chock of wood to prevent damage to the sump.

you could raise & lower the gearbox by hand (i usually would but its heavy so be careful), but you need something to rest it on while you disconnect and reconnect the gearbox. another jack is good for this, and if you use a jack then you can lower it and slide it out on the jack, and vice versa when refitting.
