Question was raised recently elsewhere, so referring to this image:
download/file.php?id=16896

Browse to where the image is stored on your PC and click on "Add the file".

Once done, the option of adding more files appears. Note: If they are sequential do them in reverse order so they appear correctly. The "Preview" button does what it says...you can have a look before you commit to an upload. Hope that makes sense.

Note: If you have difficulty reading any (other) images uploaded...right click on it and choose to open in new window, or tab, which will hopefully enlarge it to see more detail.

HIH Cheers - Richard

Thanks Richard. I tried following your sage advice, but got an error message saying file was too big, max allowed size is 2Mib. That was with the first of my 4 photos, which according to my computer is a JPEG image of 3,391 KB. For a shortlived moment, i thought it would work. Computers - doncha just love em!! Any idea what i'm doing wrong?

Best Regards, Baz

This is a long shot, the last reply being 8 years ago, but here goes. I too have an S2 without a key for the doors. The cast push button housing is stamped/cast either 909 or 606. Did you have success with the FS903 that you procured?

I'm also up for the challenge of taking the cylinder apart but not sure how to extract the push button cylinder from the cast housing, looks like 2 small pins on either side of slots 180 degrees apart that prevent its removal?

I'm pretty sure that, you need a working key to get the lock barrel out, unless you are going to drill it out.
