Re: Clio mk2 ignition barrel swap

Can you just change the metal part, ( the blade)
for some reason I can not see the pictures properly,
will your original section, that holds the blade and the donor section that holds the immo section will they clip together,

If not , then to get it to start and pass your mot, you can try this.
Your original key, glue it to the ignition barrel outer section, (you can cable tie it), you will need to move it along the outer edge for it to pick up the signal, but you might find you will have to take all the doings out of the donor plastic in case the donor one interferes with your original, (hidden out of view of the MoT tester )
See if this will work before you put all the cowling back on,
Make sure all the doors are unlocked, before you take it for a retest

Then sort it out after the retest,
