Just curious about a couple of jobs that I need to do...

How long will it take to dismantle the lock, get a snapped key out and put it back on the car? Is it a job I can do after work?

Also, how easy is it to adjust the handbrake?

Also, I now have the key for my ECU, do I simply tape the transponder chip near the ECU to make it work? Or is this totally wrong?

With the key Dan, you take the little chip and put it actually inside the key.

Did you get the ECU, chip and the ignition barrel ring?

This -



goes in the key (there's a special place for it)

This -



goes on the ignition barrel

and then it'll all work with the new ECU.

That's probably more than you needed to know

Without that, you can't use the new ECU, it won't start

You'll have to get the ring, or a new ECU with ring and chip.

Bummer! Am I right in thinkng that ECU exist in earlier models that do not require a chip at all because they didn't use immobilisers?

Yeah, but they don't work with the later 1.6s as the wiring is different
