Incredible but true someone attempted to steal my 33 when I left it parked near the station to get the train.
Luckily thieves were unable to turn the ignition on by directly connecting the wires of the the ignition switch, but the result were a broken door lock, a completely spoiled ignition switch, and the car left with the locked steering wheel.
I had the door lock available stored somewhere but I was unable to find a spare ignition switch. So I turned for a cheap chinese Renault Twingo spare switch on ebay. It fitted it quite easily after removing the steering wheel locking part from it.

Some picture of the job below:

I have just sold my 33, including a new lock set!

All the best

Sorry to hear you sold your 33, (along with precious lock set ) hope you will buy a new one in a near future! Anyway now my 33 has two bits of chinese stuff, the first one described above. I will show the second one in another post.
