Replacement Ignition Barrel(cylinder)

Recommended Posts

Well I'm back on here again asking more questions lol

So went to put WD40 into the ignition barrel. Used one of those micro files to keep the key barrel open so it wouldn't close and jam the plastic tube of the WD40 and typical of me the end of the metal file snapped and dropped inside the barrel.

Cannot now get the key in the barrel and it won't turn even to position 1. Tried all sorts even pressurised air to try and blow it out but with no luck.

Looks like I'm going to have to buy a new barrel.

My question is, can I get a new barrel from jaguar that will match my existing keys and if so will everything have do be re coded again, and if so how much am I roughly looking at?

i.e. My old keys to the new barrel or will I have to buy a new barrel with a new key therefore I'll land up with a different key to the rest of the car, and also how does the coding then work with different keys.

Also cannot do the job myself so independent garage guy is calling at the house on Saturday. Not knowing anything about cars other than driving them and putting petrol in them. Is this a big job ??

i haven't even had a chance to drive this car properly but on this occasion it's my mess up :(

Cheers everyone

Hi Phil, 

Unfotunately I can't offer an answer, but the irony is that a squirt of of WD40 would have seeped through.  I have done it several times with door locks.

Let us know how you get on on Saturday.

Regards,

Peter.

If the files steel? It might be worth getting a thin N52 Neodymium magnet and clamping the magnet tight in to a pair of long nose mole grips.Hole the barrel dust cover open with something none metal and go fishing.

Thanks guys for your replies, did try all sorts including the straw taped up to the Henry Hoover. Gave in, in the end,truly well beaten by my stupidity.

I feel like that old character on tv many years "Frank Spencer". Everything I seem to touch goes pear shaped.

Defeated I had to eat humble pie and phoned jaguar and ordered a new ignition barrel, but I've been told it will match my existing keys(which is one blessing)

Cost £232 just for the part. Heaven knows what's it going to cost in labour charges by my mechanic. Expensive mess up.

Im not much better at diy either come to think of it. Reminds me of a few years ago I was taking down an old brick outhouse. One of the walls collapsed and the Mrs was standing a foot away from where it all fell.

Now she has to periodically check on me if I do anything nowadays lol

Cheers again everyone.
