Ignition barrel Pops Out Sign In

Hiya

I have recently replaced the ignition barrel in my Vauxhall Astra and for a few weeks it was fine until recently, where it has started 'popping out'. I could manage to get in back in for a while until now when it pops out every time i turn the key. It is def not a problem with the barrel, its seems to be more with the other side ( left of the steering column) where the end of the barrel pin pokes through, and its as if its not being held in place. Any ideas would be greatly received as to what i should do.

Thanks
Chloe

Who replaced it? They need to take it back apart and see what fell off.

Hiya

I did and it was ok for about month and then suddenly started popping out. Someone mentioned a bolt/pin normally holds it in place but i dont remember seeing one when i replaced it, only the hole i had to press to get the old one out?

Thanks
Chloe

You won't find the answer here. You will find it by examining the lock and seeing what isn't holding.
