Hi Everyone

 

I've just got a 5dr mk3 which i was told has a steering lock issue where it doesn't lock.

 

Would i need to replace the ignition barrel or the whole lot?

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in Advance

 

Craig

It could be a couple of things, either the lock mechanism, and/or the ignition barrel is sticking, which is stopping the barrel from moving out when you withdraw the key.

 

Firstly I would try another barrel, as that's the easiest one to do, if it's not that then it looks like a complete lock mechanism.

 

Finding either of these for a MK3 these days is going to be a bit of a bind, and i'm not certain if one from a MK4 would fit either

I'll have a look when I pick it up

I was trawling eBay a few weeks back and it's looking like i will struggle to find a lock.

If it is just the barrel that's the problem, you might find that one with the tibbe key will most probably fit

I managed to get hold of a barrel from a 95 plate escort the barrel in my car is sticking and making it harder for the key to be removed hopefully the barrel will fix the problem
