    Default 403 key switch

    I have started resto of my 1961 403 and am having difficulty removing the starting key barrel. I have removed the 6mm stud and pushed into the hole near it which I I assumed Would release said barrel. Having to remove the barrel because the backing plate holding the wires is loose.Any advice appreciated.

    I think you have to have the insert the key into the lock and have it in a certain position before the barrel will come out.

    yes Pete is right, there are two mechanism needs to be depressed before extraction.
    1) steering lock
    2) the bottom mechanism ( don;t know the name)

    If my memory is correct, the key is turn 40 degrees before this can happen. Hope you understand french.....

    The key needs to be in the Garage position, before the sprung plunger can be pushed in allowing the lock to be removed.
