Re: Anyone good with locks?

Sorry for the delay on replying..been having password issues! Ok..so what I have been trying to do is use the barrel out of my new lock with the housing from my old lock, as the chrome is slightly better.

Re: Anyone good with locks?

20190404_074933.jpg R code I think G.

Looks like I ...

Re: Anyone good with locks?

Thanks for the comprehensive reply G. Think I have sussed the problem - the channel that the end of the grubscrew slides along is closed at one end, but open at the other, so if you turn the key too far, the grubscrew slides out of the end of the channel and the lock can pull out.

Re: MOT exemption

Question..if I take my bus for an mot and it fails, do i have to take it back and get it re-mot'd when I fix the failure issue(s), or can I just fix it at my leisure..
Just wondered if the dvla's records would show as a fail which would need changing to a pass.
Tnx.
