I don't think taking it off will be a problem, but I have no idea what species I'm looking for to buy the replacement :sad:547268
 
What's the problem ?
Can you make out the make of the lock ?

I hope that's not your only lock on the garage door. They are notoriously rubbish. Mine is no more that what's used in a filing cabinet (same key). There are another 4 locks on the door though. :wacko:

That's not actually the best pic of the maker's name. Which I've just realised I've been spelling wrong - it's a "Cardale". Google has quickly found me a replacement :laugh: Just need to get the right spindle lenght now ...

Also need to check if it is half a barrel or a full barrel as sometimes the bottom bit is a blank.

They are a bugger to get out by the way as you need to work blind behind the defence plate inside and mess about releasing the springs that operate the latches at the side and top assuming it is a 3point one?

ERA locks fit also.

Same in mine. You need to remove both black bits if I remember correctly. The small black bit releases the faceplate from the front and the big bit releases the handle and locking mechanism so you can change the barrel. There is also a hidden screw or two in the cavities which need unscrewing. Be careful not to lose the screw!
