    Morning 8Lers.

    A friend of mine has a R 1.8T and he's got a bit of a overly sensitive key. I don't know much about the issue as I had a email from him last night.
    This is what he says is wrong.

    I'm thinking of just getting a ignition switch from a breaker (Pats3poa breaker), swapping the barrels over and plugging it in.
    I've not seen how this is all put together or if its possible, so before I travel any way and start stripping it down, I thought I'd see you lot.

    Any one got any ideas?

    It could be the switch on the back of the barrel, I'd ask if there is a lot of movement with the key in the barrel

    You must type really slowly

    we'er just busy.

    The key is solid, like you'd expect it to be.
    I'm meeting up with him tonight, so I'll take a look then.

    can it be removed from the barrel or is it part of the barrel.

    If like others I've come across you should be able to remove from the barrel

    I've had a look and the key/barrel is not locking in to position 2.
    It will go to position 2 but will jump out to position 1 with the smallest of touches.

    Not sure if its the barrel at fault or the main unit where it locks in to position.
    Just to be on the safe side I'm going to get everything off Pat (cheers mate) and replace the lot.
    Hopefully. Give it a go and see what happens. lol

    Any one got any guides or information on replacing locks and barrels?

    Yeah, I'll be going up there to help him take the locks out but I'd prefer some bit of a reading before so I don't jump head first in to the completely unknown.
