      there's a retaining screw on the back of it, see page 14-27 in the bentley, shows a picture on the top right of the page, and an arrow pointing to the screw.

      I thought you had to drille a 3mm hole in one spot and press a spring to get the lock out?

      that rang a bell with me as well, but that's all i could find after a quick search in the bentley, points to the screw and says "the ignition lock cylinder is held in with this screw" or something, and that's about all it says.

      From Bentley


      To replace the ignition lock cylidner drill a 3mm hole in the lock cylinder housing at the point indicated in Fig(well, damn no scanner at home). Inset a pin though the hole and press down on the spring that holds the lock cylinder in the housing

      There...now we have to figure out how to get the picture.

      Ok, drill 12mm froom the edge of where the cylidner enters the cast housing and 3mm from the vw/audi symbol towards the big part of the husing(or to the right...
      Got it?

      A hole has to be drilled into the outside of the housing allowing you to puch the retaining clip down and pull the lock cylinder out.

      Turn to Chapter/page 11/34 in your bentley manual and find the WHOLE procedure in detail.

      Edit: already posted.

      yes you STILL have to drill a hole...old one still has to come out right?

      much better advice to look on page 11-34.

      here:

      so drill a 3mm (or 15/127th's of an inch ) hole in that red area, and press down in the spring loaded peice underneath, that should eject the lock cylinder, that's the best i can reckon from the bentleys instructions, somebody correct if i'm wrong!

      well, except for the ejection part... you have to pull it out...
