well a week or so before i parked it up for the transplant i found the drivers side wasnt working and deduced that was why the prev owner fitted a cheap remote locking alarm, that i since removed as it was draining the battery.
 so i had to use the passanger side to lock/unlock then after it had been parked up a while left unlocked since it was safe in my back garden then accedentally i locked it and found the passanger side didnt work either with either the regular worn key or the spare virtually unused one .
so i got on with the transplant  . . a month or so later i had to release the steering lock to fit the new rack and found neither key worked in the ignition without major jiggling of key and wheel . admittedly i havent dismantled them to look or tried any lube yet
i just thought it wise to seek spares incase i need them

You can get rebuild kits from ford, simple enough job.

Rebuild to match the newest key and get another cut.

No sorry, probbaly not a lot as it's just a few brass plates and slip disks.

Could ask on the Sierra forum as somone used to rebuild them to order.

It depends on which lock but I think it was 30 quid for the drivers side.

You get a bag of bits (kit) then you just put it all together to match your key.

First one is tricky but after one or two they get easy

But you can get complete pattern lock sets with 3 new keys off ebay for about 30 quid now so maybe that is easier & better.

I can do a quick guide if you want as I have one todo today infact.


However I disemble old locks & build new ones from them to different keys.

I can't stand having 2 or even 3 different keys to a car when locks have been replaced.

yeah dave a few pointers would be handy cheers , i know what you mean multi keys are a pain , im going to have a look at them today hopefully they just need a fiddle to get working  again


had a quick look on ebay looks like i can get repair kits and stuff at reasonable prices , though i cant find any full sets but hey the kits should cover it if i cant fix my originals , cheers again guys

Yeah I recoded my ignition barrel as the person who should have returned my complete lockset and keys as part of selling them a car did not quite happen.

I keep all my old locks for this when stripping cars..... Should realy do the mondeo boot lock.
