Default ignition barrel

Seems the ignition barrel (tumbler) is no longer available for 107's. Does anyone know of a locksmith that can repair one?

Give John at Mercedes Spares Greenacre Ph. 97901126 a call.
I'm sure he will have a good used item.

Thanks Sean, second hand presents the same prob as they are well known for suddenly locking up as they age. I was trying to retain the one key setup, if I cant get it rebuilt I'll have to go for an unmatched barrel and have 2 keys. Seems there are a few different ones for 107's which makes second hand tricky

In a similar vein, the steering lock for W113's are no longer available.

A BIG thanks to Chris and the team at Mbspares for supplying a new oem lock and barrel. These parts are considered unavailable from what I read on the net. Cars is finally back on the road, but not without drama as the ignition locked into the lock position. The skill of my mechanic saved the day as he was able to jiggle it to the acc position. Shame to think something as simple as this could take a car off the road.
