Door lock help please

Recommended Posts

My daughter has just bought a Lupo 1.7 SDi. Happy with it except for one thing. The previous owner had to replace a door lock for some reason and I am assuming a second hand one was fitted as it is a different key to the other door and the ignition. As far as I can tell, the door locks are handed but are the lock barrels interchangeable from side to side? My thought was to swap the locks left to right so she can use just one key for the door and ignition. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I'm afraid not, you can look on this photo and play spot the difference, I can see at least one difference:

However if you really want to do it you can take the lock barrel apart and switch the inner pieces around
