Xantia X2 Saloon boot lock barrel

Post by mark-nimbus-it-uk »

Long time lurker, first time poster.
I have bought my mother an X2 that has obviously had some lock changes.
I am in the process of changing all the barrels. Doors, no problem, have now worked out what to poke and where, ignition is easy, but the blazes do you get the barrel out of the bot lock?
I have the whole mech infront of me on the desk, and I'm stumped.

Light bulb has come on. This is the answer. These pictures show where the tang is located. Push the button in to expose it, poke screwdriver in there to depress the tang, then use another screwdriver to lever the barrel out.

It is a proper 3 handed job.

Well done, and thanks for explaining. That will help anybody else who experiences the same problem.

Thanks Hell, I hope so! I have a few other things to post else where that might help.
I'm a bit of a lone wolf, and have worked out how to do many things on my own that i really should share.

The forum won't allow me to attach the DXF or PDF of this, but here is a drawing of the gasket.
Scale until 64mm diameter.

I made mine from sheet foam from Hobby Craft.
