So my daughters door lock has failed. To the point it won't release the key and at 1 am I had to take door card of off and take the barrel out.

I am going to replace it. I don't need a lock made around the key as it was the spare I was using and she will just use her own key as normal with the buttons.

When I Google 107 or c1 locks I get belingo ones that the barrel looks identical to. The plastic clip on the end of the arm looks. Slightly different. Will these fit? I presume I just need to pop the circlip and swap the arm and plastic arcorrs? Or are they totally different?

I wouldn’t go to the effort of dicking about with modifying things, just take the hit and buy the correct barrels, you could even buy a whole lock set from a scrap car. Might me cheaper than a new cut barrel

It's not trouble... Its not dicking about. Its 1 circlip. Like I said the barrels look identical. The arm that's attached is identical. The plastic clip in the end is slightly different.

My question is asked because I'm looking at pictures and it's not always as simple with pictures. Every search takes me to these locks pretty much. The ones ive found second hand are 50 quid for a single second hand lock. The ones I think are the same apart from 1 clip are 25 for 3. So instead of buying some and then sending them back because of a subtle difference a picture didn't show I'd thought I'd ask the community... The only reply tjougb said I'm dicking about.... Cheers for your help

I'm afraid I don't know the difference, but I did happen to buy a lock and immobilser set on ebay a bit back. The locks were described as for aygo/c1/107. Is this what you're looking for?

He didn't say you were dicking about - that's wilful misinterpretation (in my opinion.)

The context was that it was going to be a lot of work/faff (ie a lot of 'dicking about', which is what this means (in this context)) to change things to make them fit, and they didn't think it was worth it.

English isn't your first language is it PirateTimelord...

Did your 'dicking about' pay off Sieski? Did you fit them ok? I'm interested as I need to replace mine.

they just gum up...jI just squirt them with brake degreaser , work the key then lube with wd40 dry ptfe lube they normally free up. works on most locks...somebody will have squirted them with the wet wd40 which pulls the dirt and grease between the wards of the lock.

Best lubricant to use if powdered graphite, which being dry doesn't attract dirt etc.

It's obtainable from any good lock supplier, I get mine from Barnsley Lock online.

Tbh he never even took my advice that I stated anyway.

Piratetimelord is correct in understanding my statement. It more hassle that it’s worth to go stripping locks and replacing small circlips on a set of locks for a different vehicle, just big the correct ones to start with. It is a lot of dicking around to achieve a very simple fix if you just get toe correct stuff
