Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year of registration (not plate or model year) in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Registration Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Happy Easter all,
I am going to remove my ignition switch on my SAAB 93 2005 cabriolet vector petrol manual, for cleaning and checking the contacts. It has not given me any problems in the last few weeks, but in the past my better half has had the key stuck and only released after disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
But before I do that my own car has a steering lock issue and we need at least one car functioning correctly.
I have a Mercedes e class 2010 petrol manual coupe. I've removed the lock from the steering column and replaced the motor. Apparently this is a common fault on Mercs. Still have an intermittent problem having to replace the key in the ignition a couple of times before it will allow me to start the car. So I plan to fit an emulator to replace said lock but these usually need programming to the car, so can any body recommend a good and sensibly priced locksmith/auto in the Exeter/Devon area.
Any advice appreciated, yes I know I should have bought another SAAB, had lots it the past and loved every one.
