Repair for door locks and ignition barrels

There are times when lost or broken car keys aren’t the problem – it could be a damaged car lock, central locking mechanism problem or even a remote locking device issue. The Auto Locksmith provides a mobile car lock repair service capable of repairing or replacing car locks and ignition barrels. It’s a far cheaper option than the garage option and so much more convenient.

Common car lock problems

If you drive a Vauxhall, are you aware that most models are prone to jammed ignitions caused by air conditioning and high temperatures? With any car, you can discover that your key won’t turn in the ignition. At the roadside, The Auto Locksmith can remove the ignition barrel, disassemble it, make repair and reassemble it. Alternatively they are able to supply and fit a replacement ignition barrel.

Peugeot cars can experience problems with keys only going partway into the ignition and refusing to turn. The Auto Locksmith can make the necessary repair without even having to remove the ignition.

It doesn’t matter if you have different keys for your door locks or ignition because they can remove the old lock and re-order the pins or wafers to make it match the other locks.

With no warning the ignition barrel on my Vauxhall Astra jammed. After searching the internet I came across The Auto Locksmith website, which identified my exact problem. I attempted the hints and tips suggested on their website to free up my ignition with no avail. I called these guys on Sunday evening and a Locksmith arrived on Monday morning. The engineer had my ignition repaired within an hour and its as good as new!! Great service guys. Mr Asgar, Tottenham, London


Top notch service for getting new car keys.... Well recommended, 5 stars.....I lost both spare keys and the master car key to my 99 Ford Fiesta. I read on the internet that replacing car keys can be very expensive and time consuming. The Auto Locksmith offered a car key replacement service at my place of work at a price that didn't break the bank. They saved me time and money and even replaced all three car keys. I would recommend their specialist "lost automobile key service" to anyone.Mr Ahmed, Chingford
