Many thanks pottsy. I now have a new problem even though the steering was
permanently locked.This was overcome by removing the ignition switch and
giving the steering lock shaft a sharp tap.It would appear that the
underlining fault is the barrel of the lock as sometimes the shaft does
not move with the key and not at all with the ignition switch in situ. Can
the barrel be withdrawn from its housing to be lubricated then replaced?
Haynes' talks about depressing a plunger to release the barrel but this
has so far eluded me as I have no plunger.Could the barrel be prised out
gently with diametrically opposed screwdrivers?
