Removing the ignition Barrel

Wondered how I remove the igniton barrel as my key has snapped off about 1/2 way down?

Got to try jewellery pliers first, but if not im gonna try removing the ignition as see what I can do from them. See if i can shake it out or take it to a locksmiths. Obviously cant move the car otherwise I would take it straight there.

Will it affect my aftermarket immobilier if I remove/change the igntion barrel?

Thanks in advance
James

Re: Removing the ignition Barrel

I've not taken a Cinq one off, but a Punto one has two security bolts with a cone head, there is no easy way to grip them, so either weld something on the end (take care about grounding so as not to blow ecu) or you may be able to grind a slot into the end with a dremel (angle grinder will be too big to get close) and then unscrew it with large flat screwdriver.

Re: Removing the ignition Barrel

You use a centre punch to tap the head of the bolt round.

Re: Removing the ignition Barrel

keep the 2 halfs safe, if you loose the spare you can still get a good one made out of them

Re: Removing the ignition Barrel

I've removed two ignition barrels from Cinqs, one the original style, one the newer style with different stalks etc like a Sei as the barrels are different when doing my stalk conversion on blue as the steering columns are different, and therefore needed the barrels changing.

I managed to remove both, and reuse the "tamper proof" bolts with nothing more than tools found in the average tool box, didn't take long either.

Aaron.

Re: Removing the ignition Barrel

So Aaron, do you reckon that the columns are dismantleable? I have play at the top column bush and was wondering if it's replaceable like most f*rds are?

The whole column comes out very easily, one bolt on universal joint at the peddle end, two bolts holding top half in place under the steering wheel couling. Depending on which type of column it is, the later type (Sei) is in two sections that just slide over each other.
