Alfa Gtv 2.0 TS

Crazed Ignition barrel

Hi Guys,

Has anyone here successfully changed an ignition barrel on their gtv?

The problem i have is earlier today my key would turn past mar, like it was jammed. So i released the key part of the barrel. The part located behind that was all lose and wonky so i removed it and it seems somethings broke as theres a small bit of broken metal in there.

I cleaned it all up, re-greased and put it back in, now if i t turn the key anticlockwise it will turn over (If i take the key out it continues to turn over!).

What i need to know is where could i find the internals or the whole unit, anyone breaking a gtv?

Re: Ignition barrel

I would have thought you just get a new barrel and reprogramme the key? Not tried it on Alfas tho?
