you have to turn key to position 2, there is a hole on the side of the casing the barrel slides into facing upwards. Press small Alan key into hole and press a button down and barrel should slide out.

How do you change ignition barrel on 2002 vauxhall zafira?

To remove the ignition barrel you need to be able to turn the key to position II. On the barrel casing you are looking for a small hole in to which you insert something like an Allen Key. The barrel can then be extracted. If you can't turn to the second position then its time to get the drill out and carefully drill the contents of the barrel. It's worth tapping the casing with a hammer whilst turning the key if the barrel has stuck before drilling.

How do you change ignition barrel of n reg cavalier?

two ways 1. if you have the ignition key and it still turns the barrel then you turn to pos two and insert a sharp object in to a hole in the side to push in a pin, the barrel should then just slide out...2. if you do not have the key or it will not turn the barrel then you will have to resort to a big hammer and sharpened chisel, this method will involve replacing more than just the barrel as the whole steering lock unit needs to be smashed off....good luck.....robb

How do you change an ignition barrel on an Astra Convertible?

Pretty much all Vauxhalls have the same method to extract the ignition barrel.1). Remove all screws from the plastic cowling2). Turn the steering wheel to reveal the last two screws hidden behind the wheel3). If you have adjustable steering, you will need to unscrew the adjuster4). You will now see the ignition barrel exposed.5). Carefully slip off the black plastic ring around the end of the barrel (Ignition transponder/immobiliser)6). If you look alongside the left outer side of the ignition barrel housing, you will see a tiny hole.7). Put key in ignition8). Push a piece of metal into that hole, and turn key to position 29). You might have to giggle the key and the piece of metal, but eventually the barrel will pop and you can pull it out.
