This is my car.......and i love her. Look at how happy she looks sat by the side of the road waiting to be driven. Look at how original she is, at the natural gloss of her beautiful paint work. And she's not just a pretty face. Despite her 18 years and 186k miles she is a hard worker. Who was there when i needed to move into a new workshop? She was. Who was there when that old mattress needed to be taken to its final resting place? She was. But now she needs YOUR help. She is in danger, and we all have to save her. Ok,so the ignition barrel is no longer working and despite days of fiddling, shaking and caressing i cannot turn the key to position number one.i know the other way is a long painful drawn out process that should be left to a professional, but i just cannot afford it. The last couple of months have been a financial nightmare with substantial repairs to both cars completely emptying the coffers. The money has run out and the bank is empty. I cannot leave her sat outside the house the way she is, so if i cannot fix her myself she will have to go. I know an old mercedes that cannot be driven (and needs a new exhaust) will not fetch much money, and she is too lovely to scrap, so this is why i need your help. I am not a mechanic. Im not even very mechanically minded, but i do have some common sense and a logical brain. I need as much help and advice as to how to replace the ignition barrel as possible. Step by step instructions, photos etc will all be tremendously welcome. Please help save my beloved!
