On the edge of the ignition barrel there is a little hole, you must turn the ignition to the first click and insert i 1.2 mm rod (drill bit)about an inch down into the lock and puch back the ident then pull the key and barrel out together.

I have a bmw 316i compact and my key will not turn the ignition no more any answers


Hi

Very common fault, is the key just spinning around? if so the ignition barrel is hot so you will need a new one, if you dont have time right now to fix it then turn tha car off turn the steering all the way right then put the key in the ignition while also turning full steering lock right, this often gives the barrel switch some grip and you can start the car.

Do you need more specific information on how to repair this yourself?

If so do get back to me and I will tell you how.

Regards

Dan

My bmw 316i model 1997 has problem releasing the steering lock mechanism. Key also battles to staert car.


order a new ignition barrel from your local BMW agent before your lock packs up all together and you will have an even bigger problem, to remove your barrell turn your key to the first position then insert a 1.2mm rod or drill down the little hole in the edge of the chrome key slot to push down the detent that hold the barrell in, pulll out old barrell with the key then fit new one.

Key is broken in 316i touring lux 1993 ignition how do we get the barrel out and do we need a replacement steering column also


alot of times a broken key may be removed by a torch tip cleaning file. this can be had at most hardware stores. its rectangular and when opened has a lot of little round files in it. find the file that will fit in to the key slot snugly and push it in then slowly pull it out. this may take some expermintation with sizes and techniche but i have removed a lot of key stubs this way.

Hi. i have just replaced a barrel on a bmw 316i auto n reg. this barrel i bought second-h. it also came with this box,now this is were i need some assistance.this box has the letters [ews 11]and 61.35-8...


Im presuming you are talking about the wires which come from the switch unit at the side of the switch housing, if you took the old one off it should be easy, if you didnt look to the side of the steering column and look for an empty socket your plug wont go into the wrong socket, remember you have to refit the ring round the replacement ignition lock as this "reads" the information on your key and allows you to start the engine

Radiator removal BMW 316i


hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.

Fitting new ignition barrel series 3 1996 316i


It is a very small hole in the switch cylinder. About the size of a paperclip or maybe a bit thicker. It is to reset the ignition. If that does not work. you may have to replace the switch. try using aa paperclip or someting to push into the hole. Being vcareful not to force it too much. So it won't break inside.
