Ignition Barrel - Help Needed

Postby marty » Tue Jan 21, 2014 11:30 pm

A couple of guys broke into my fto and unsuccessfully attempted to hot wire it at the weekend.

The problem is they've pulled out all the wiring from under the steering column and a lot of the wires are pulled out of their connector blocks or cut in half. I'm going to need a new ignition barrel but initally im just trying to find what wires go into the connector block that plugs into the back of the ignition barrel. Would anyone have a picture of the back of their ignition barrel so I can see what wires go where? The hope would then be that if i can rebuild the connector block I'll be able to hot wire the car to get it started and back into the driveway since its now in the street with no door locks!

If anyone has a picture of their ignition barrel intact, or can shed any light on the wiring it would be VERY much appreciated. Also if anyone has experience of hotwiring their FTO feel free to PM any advice!

Thanks
