Anyone know how I get the lock barrel out of the push button on a PX seat using rudimentary toolage (toolbag is in the scoot and I cant be arsed to get it) Ive got the lock mechanism off an old seat out but before I start jamming screwdrivers in it and twisting it I thought someone would know of a better less painful method.
The lock is held in from underneath by a couple bolts that screw upwards into the frame to secure it.
How about getting a wrench ( 16mm, maybe? ) around the seat-locking peg, and rotate counterclockwise until you've unscrewed it from the bike and the seat is able to lift.
I think you may have got the wrong end of the stick there Mr eric.
I need to get the lock barrel out of the lock mechanism cos I want to swap a seat lock that I dont have keys for, over to an ancillotti seat (christmas pressy from the Mrs) that doesn't have a lock at all just a push button. The seat lock that i'm replacing the push button with needs a new barrel which i've got and comes with its key.
