    If its just the actual barrell, then im sure you insert the key and turn to position 2 (try the other too just in case), then there should be a tiny little hole somewhere within the acuminium casting, you need to push that in with a nail/strong pin or similar, then it should pop out with the key.

    To replace is simply turn to same position and push in and turn key then pull out.

    Used to be like this on the old Cavalier, and I did it once of the pre-face Vec-B, should be same me thinks!


    Bye bye Vec B

    If it is a Vectra B then there is a very small hole underneath I think it is situated. Put a small screwdriver in and push whilst pulling the barrel out with the ignition key (in auxilary position).
