VW Ignition Lock Removal


Call top of key way 12 O'clock.


At 11 O'clock mark a line along the ignition housing. (from cast lip on front of housing heading back towards steering column).


Measure 12mm back along this line from the cast lip on ignition housing.


Punch/drill hole at this position to find retaining spring.


Push spring down to release lock.


Should find code on side of barrel.

the same thought occurred to me peter but then i thought that lots of people who aren't key cutters know how to take an ignition out so i decided not to move it :)


i get plenty of customers bringing ignition barrels in over the year but it's not a service we offer anyway.
