    Default Broken Key Lock.

    Just how would one go about removing a broken key lock mechanism on a 505.

    I tried to turn the key one day and it preety well, well it felt like it collapsed in the barrel.

    Either way, got a set in a car i can use, but stuffed if i know how to go about removing them "shrugs"

    Had a quick look the sarvo and it seems fairly well attached to the inner door frame, also.

    There seems to a mechanism that would be responsible for central locking still attached to the locking mechanism.. Is that indeed what it is? sits in the drivers door about half way down i suppose across on the right hand side with a black spring sealed in a shroud connected to the locking mechanics.

    Can i just get my hands on a middle locking switch, i geus it goes where under the drivers window winder switch in the middle consel where a spair space exists "shrugs"


    Anyway.. Cheers for your wisdom,

    Hi Bowie,
    This is a very simple job, the lock is held in place by a U shaped clip, with a tang on one end, just lever on the tang with a long screwdriver until it slides out of the grooves in the lock and remove the lock from the door, there is nothing else to remove.
    Regards Pete

    I am gunna get another 403 on the road........one day

    I agree, but don't lever against anything important, i.e. anything you will be refitting. I found it was safer to use a pair of pliers, and "jiggle" the clip. Towards the front of the car, obviously.

    My reply makes it seem that I agree that you're an idiot, but that's not what I meant. I agree with Mr. Pete, not you. That doesn't mean I don't agree with you. Give me a bigger spade, and I'll dig myself a deeper hole...............................

    If you've started to see little green men it's time for the men in white to errr, interview you...

    Good luck.

    Here's a good trick. Glue your bails together, that always fools them.

    well i finaly get around to removing em and swaping them over..

    only to find they are different..

    The older 505 lock i wanted to use is significatly larger to the barral in the 83 model 505 i have

    but low and behold, when i took the old one out i attack it with WD40 and it seems to be functioning again properly "shrugs"

    I did manage to break another two white hocks of my door trim tho


    Oh.. and thanks for the tip, ill pass it on via hero fax tonight
