    Default Citroen DS RHD ignition switch for sale

    Here is an ignition switch, that I have just removed from my RHD 1972 DS20 manual.
    It works fine, using the butt of the key.
    The other half of the key is inside the barrel
    I was going to put it on e bay uk, with a starting price of fifty quid if anyone is interested?

    Hello, you should be able to get the rest of the key out. Then, if you have already bought a replacement, put this one on the shelf and watch grow in value at a much faster rate than your pension pot...

    Word. A new switch is near enough 400.00 here. Wouldn't surprise me if a good used one is something around 1/3-1/2 that.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    I think if you remove the 'C' clip and drop the switch block off the base of it ... You can push the other part of the key out from below It's a while since I've had one apart I'd remove that steering lock pawl while I'm there too.

    Hang on! We missed something! What's happening with your car? Are you just swapping the ignition up or is the car a dead'un?

    I rebuilt one of those by replacing the roll pin in the switch block with a short length of drill shank. Not much else goes wrong with them. It was for a friend of mine and the switch has worked well ever since!
