Post theft repair help!

Hey Guys,

First post here so apologies for lack of know how in advance!

I've had a 1988 4x4 Sisley for just over a year now and unfortunately someone 'tried' to steal it the other week.

Luckily they didn't know what they were doing, but made a pretty big mess especially of the steering column/ignition and the passenger door lock (pictures attached, sorry for the crappy iphone photography)

New locks and wiring is the easy part, but could really do with advice on the steering column/ignition part and how best to go about finding suitable replacement parts.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Post theft repair help!

1st get a stop lock for the steering wheel. Possibly if you had one fitted this could have been different
The door needs beating out pretty simple then refit a new lock. To keep the same get s whole lock set all4 then a column barrel is required. This will need drilling or grinding off hopefully the key contacts are fine full key / lock sets can be bought from recambio or eBay. It
Or put up a wanted post or parts request as a panda may be being broken down for parts.

Re: Post theft repair help!

Hello and welcome,

Was it your car that was up for auction a couple of weeks ago on copart?

Plenty of spares available, you can post a full list of what you need if you like and I am sure we'll be able to help you out with bits.

Re: Post theft repair help!

Thanks for all the replies! Interesting to hear about the copart listing, the garage I dealt with via insurance was a nightmare so this doesn't surprise me.

Lumek do you think you could source the new ignition switch/housing? That's the one piece of the puzzle I'm struggling with.

According to the comments it appeared to get up to at least 700 on bids before it got pulled, this is the link if you need it:

https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/45435627

though it doesn't work the lot number may be useful (45435627).

I'm checking now to see if I can find one...
would it be the same for LHD/RHD cars?
