    Question Ignition Barrel Removal????

    Sorry if this question seems stupid but here goes

    I have bought a 2nd hand column for my corsa C and after some good answers on my last post i am now resolved to change the whole column instead of getting away with just exchanging the ECU or ESP Motor

    the problem i have is that the column came without an ingnition key so i cant use the prescribed method to exchange the ignition barrel for my own one.

    it was suggested that i would need to use a hammer but where do i need to hit it?

    please help if you can as i don't want to **** up the new column by doing this wrong

    thanks for any help
    Roj.

    remove the cowlings, on top of the barrel housing should be a small hole. flick barrel to position 1, push down through the hole on the plastic which will push a tag into the barrel itself then pull. easy!

    when reffiting u need to push down the lock tag inside the new column with a long screwdriver, it is inside the new column where the barrel sits.

    Use a smallish allen key to poke through the hole. The key must be in the ignition.

    think you need to break the bolts that hold the barrel mech round the column and replace the whole thing

    put a sturdy flat head into the barrel where the key goes into hit the end of the screwdriver intil its in about 1.5cm then use mole grips and turn the screwdriver. that will allow you to turn the ignition so its turned on and the push an allen key into the small hole and draw out the barrel.

    i would come and help but im not going to smash off an ignition barrel with that dog near by sorry. even though my missus has six of them.
