Steering Lock won't activate, cannot get the key into the ignition barrel

Hi All.

My other halfs mini has developed an odd fault.

When you remove the key the steering lock doesn't engage meaning you cannot insert the key back into the ignition.

Some times if you move the wheel left to right enough, you can get it to lock and the key will go in, but more often than not it will not lock.

I've soaked the barrel in WD40 and now the key will generally go in but the steering still doesn't lock.

Has anyone else had this problem?
Is the steering lock electronic or manual?
Where is the lock located on the rack?
Anyone got a part number for the ignition barrel?

Cheers.

Any luck with a fix on this Waitey?

Did you replace the ignition barrel, what sort of price was it?
