Boot lock with no key

Post  Peterb on Mon Nov 14, 2016 10:14 pm

My Mk3 that I have just bought appears to have had new door locks fitted, so I don't have a key that fits the boot! Anyone any idea where I can get a new lock or barrel for it? Many thanks.

Any of the usual Mini suppliers should be able to provide replacement lock barrels. I don't know whether you'll be able to find a matching set that includes the boot lock, since the Elf/Hornet uses a boot lock from an MGB or MGBGT. But if you don't mind having two keys, or just need to get a working one, try an MG parts supplier.
You'll find that the Elf/Hornet uses a hodge-podge of parts from different marques. I've got bits on mine from Triumph TR6 sidelights, Austin 1100 taillights, Vanden Plas headlight trims, etc., not to mention the Honda and Mazda bits that have found their way into the beast.
