    I need to remove the ignition barrel from the steering column - what's the best way to deal with the two cone-shape headed bolts? Not a lot of space to get a drill in there. Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Hi all, I snapped the plastic ignition barrel assembly on my 1998 156 2.5V6 in half. The parts still fit together and the car runs, but if I forget to hold them together when removing the key, the barrel separates. I have found a workshop that does plastic welding, but they can't work with the...

    Any recommendations for replacement drivers side door barrel and emergency key before I pay dealer prices? (Standard key is also fine does not need to fit in fob) Mine is either seized solid of the key is not correct for lock as it will not turn it.

    Out of curiosity I thought I would try the emergency key in drivers door lock, it wouldn’t even go in so I have been filling it with wd40 for last few days. Can get Kim in now but it will not budge when turning the key. Anyone had this before if so was it an easy fix?

  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Got round to wanting to fit my replacement boot badge today. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I pulled the key out of the boot lock and it brought the whole cylinder with it! (This before I had done anything!) As the key goes in I can see it moving the pins. However when I slide the...

    Hi All, Recently had a problem with the alternator on my 147. This caused the battery to go flat over two days whilst I waited to have the alternator changed. It was at this point that I found out that the drivers side door lock (new handle changed by a previous owner) didn't fit the key (only...

    Hi, I am in the process of sorting a duff barrel on 156 driverside. Assembly is ut of car and the pin pushed out on stop bracket for the slider. I am now stuck as the only way I can see to release the barrel is by forcing the tensioned arm and this risks snapping its bracket. I am sure there is...

    I have been using my key to open drivers side door as I gave up on fixing remote central locking a few years ago. Now the barrel has no affect on drivers side. I have to unlock/lock car from passenger side. Is it possible to change barrels over from passenger side to drivers side?

    Hi to you all. I've recently purchased my first Alfa and love it. I bought her from a garage who specialize in Alfa Romeos who shall remain nameless at this time. Now my issue is that the car should have come with two keys and they told me that there was only one. So they gave me a second...

    Just finishing off my 33 trackday car and have realised that I need a steering lock for the MOT. Unfortunately I lost the original ignition key to the car and had to remove the ignition barrel. Does anybody have a spare ignition barrel assembly and key they can sell me? Based in...
