  • HELP NEW TO FESTYS IGNITION

    Hey I'm new to FESTYS but my friends have had them for a while I have a 1991 festiva L 5 speed manual love the car runs excellent except overheats when idles for too long think it's the fan relay and top end needs new gaskets leaks oil everywhere but my main problem is I got the car and the key was broke off in the ignition lock cylinder I saw that the factory part number was discontinued anywhere to get one with keys and with door locks I would only like 1 key if I can't get a new set how would I get the key out to get a new one made I'm in Minnesota any help appreciated thanks in advanced

    A Pop-A-Lock guy may be able to get the key out and cut you a new one. If that does not work you can try joining the Facebook Group and posting a want to buy ad for a used one. There are people that have them from old scrap cars usually .

        What have you tried re removing key? Lubricate, penetrating oil, WD-40. Paper clip or similar. Thin blade, eg utility knife. Needle nose pliers. Small drill bit at top away from tumblers.
