mad Some ******* tried stealing my parents car!

Yep, happened a few days ago. They used the old transmission dipstick in the ignition trick, but luckily for us we had a killswitch installed which put an end to their attempt. The dumbshits must have been trying for a while because they sent the battery flat trying to get it started.

If you have a EA with the standard ignition locks make sure you get a killswitch, also it's a good idea to fit tibbe sniper locks(from EB) on the doors and install central locking as this makes it impossible to open the rear doors without opening the front doors first.

Luckily the killswitch saved the car from going to car heaven.

Nothings impossible... theives got into my car by popping out the rear door quarter window then just reached inside and opened the door. Would have taken them all of 5 seconds I reckon.

Glad to hear they didn't get it started fordfanatic.

Re: Some ******* tried stealing my parents car!

I'd be looking at replacing the ignition barrel with a 30th anniversary or EB series one barrel.

Glad they didn't get it!

This type of thing concerns me the most. What's the best way to prevent this happening?

Yeah but if you use the EA locking mechanisms(pre-central door locking), it had some type of kiddy protection where if the door is locked it can't be opened by the handle. So what you do is put EA rear locking mechanism in, then fit the EB door sniper locks and central door locking and make sure the sniper locks are flush with the door when locked.

End result: Car theieves can't open ya rear doors!

Re: Some ******* tried stealing my parents car!

You wont beable to open the doors at all however...

Been there done that with series 2 door trims in my series 1. I had to leave the tibbe lock off and use pliers to pull the lock up to beable to open the rear door. Not good if I ever had a crash and had passengers in the back.

Re: Some ******* tried stealing my parents car!

Just put the rear kid locks on, presto, can't open the door from the inside.

[edit]having just tested this I see it doesn't work :( Door unlocks, so you can just open it from outside [/edit]

Thats why you fit central door looking duh

Works perfectly for my car, it's an EA and I have fit central door locking and EB door sniper locks on it and the rear doors are impossible to open without activating the central door locking open.
