Hi Eric. I'll let my hubby know you replied. Don't know where you at, but it's after 00h00 here. He will contact you in the morning. Thank you so much for replying.
Hi Eric. Hope you can give some advice. The key does not turn in the ignition. I have ordered the new parts from the agents, but due to strikes in the automotive industry, a week has past without any success to solve my problem. I would like to remove the cylinder to see if I cannot repair it as a temporarily measure.
Hi Eric, I appreciate your advice! I had to drill the cylinder out through the key hole once the harder cover metal had been removed. Only then it was possible to knock in the retaining pin. Now I have to wait until the new parts arrive. At least I can move the vehicle around.
I eventually had to take the vehicle to the agents in order to have it repaired, which has cost me way more than expected. The door locks must apparently also be changed, but that has to wait until later.
