Thank you for your reply Enes, as an emergency as I need the Volvo for work I loosened the plate on the bottom of the original barrel and found a small rectangular piece of metal.I fixed the plate again and found the lock works,i hope this was the thing stopping the key turning fully, all the best Adrian.l
