Hi, I didnt think that the outer lock/handle and the lock barrel on the tailgate of the Mk2 phase 3 came as 2 seperate bits, I'm sure its all the one assembly, therefore I think you need to replace the tailgate handle (it includes the lock barrel) or use superglue/araldite or similar ??? sounds like it may have suffered some "plastic fatigue" on the mounting for the steel "c" clip that holds the barrel in place I'm sure this is not available seperately

Sorry .... expect circa £75+ vat from the dealer ... or try a scrappie ... best to try and reconnect the central locking so you dont need to use a key!

Or just "swipe" the clip ... did I really say that!

Does anyone know any different so as to confirm this for callansdad?

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
