T3 Lock repair kit

Post by JustSharon »

Just rebuilt the glove box lock so it is fully operational on a key.

In readiness for the campers lock overhaul, looking at my stash of wafers etc,  I am short on a few wafers.

Has anybody got the part number or link to the repair kit? It's not the only vehicle that needs doing so a readifull supply would be handy.

TIA

Hi Sharon,  google suggests the kit part number is 443898041A, but check yourself as I think there's at least a couple of different size cylinders that use similar tumblers.

I saw some on ebay.co.uk, but they seem a bit pricey, and in the pic the tumblers all look the same insted of varying. (I think there are four different ones, numbered 1-4):

There's a german T3 parts site:

443837232b
443837232c

Seem to be our part numbers, 4 tumbler plates and a combination of 7 of any of the 4.

Hi Sharon, if you can get the 4-digit key code stamped on one or other of the vehicles lock cylinders, in theory a properly equipped VW franchise should be able to cut a minty fresh 100% correct key. How many are still around with the correct gear and knowledge is another question..

Yep , Andy shall get a decent key first of all, but...

as I thought, NLA, according to TPS from 2013, so must of been old stock on the shelves...

The sting in the tail is £13.58 + per single tumbler blade.

I am going to conjure a plan.
