Thanks for re[yong. The other issue is trying to find the original patrt number which the company Autodoc seem to require. It's a pity that there is not an area on the club's website that you could refer to for that kind of inforamtion. I see their is a CD with data in it, which could be made available on line ?

Seems I am back to square 1 . I really urgently need a replacement ignition switch/barrel or the car is undrivable ..

 

Any  other links I could follow up

Try a pm to Danny who offered 2nd hand ones further up this thread in 2018, he & mrcarlos have dismantled many a Manta (keeping others on the road)

plenty of people on here have a good spares collection so im sure he or someone will be able to help you out.

whats actually needed for yours .the actual steering column lock unit....key barrell ....or ignition switch ?

As I think I have explained before, the issue seems to be that the key does not insert sufficiently in the ignition switch to be able and turn it to start the engine.

 

I have been able to jiggle it so that the key remians in the switch and I can at least start it. If i return the key to its normal unengaged position, it will prove impossible to reinsert it .

 

I am no techie so I am not sure what part or parts I need. My locla garage can fix it once I get the correct part.

 

any help is really appreciated but what I really want is a replacement part or parts

I should have also asked , what is the best way to contact anybody in the club about this ?

good idea  .especially if nothing obvious is stuck in the hole or the key is not badly worn. otherwise any good garage ! should have no issue removing the barrel and stripping and cleaning it when out .

You shouldn’t need to remove it. Just spray in the key slot 👍🏼

If you have faceache possibly a shout on here

or here

if its the electrical switch part that is playing up rather than the key/barrel, this German seller seems to list the UK as a destination, not cheap but it does show part numbers so you may find an equivalent

if its the barrel, its a pity this is out of stock but may help you with part numbers

Send me a pm, I have spares and can help out.

Even more so if you can remove your old one and send it to me, I can make one that fits your key.

Hi paulmanta,

 

this may be a repeat of my earlier reply but I am doing this on the club website..

Wow ! sounds like really good news ! What is a PM ?

 

I don't have the skill to undo the old one but my garage will do the work once  I source the replacement. One key is still in the switch so at least I can start the engine

 

I have a spare key if that would help

 

Thanks so far
