97 ROW with Tdci locks and ignition

Ok I'm guessing this info is buried somewhere in this site but I can't find it.

I've got a new set of tdci doors going on my 97 300tdi, the ignition has the older small diameter lock and the new doors all have the newer large diameter lock barrel.

I'm trying to avoid having two full sized keys, one for the doors and one for the ignition. Ideally one to work them all would be great.

I know one option is to replace all the door handles and rear door latch with older style ones then buy smaller barrels and a new ignition. Seems a bit excessive though.

Is there anyway to change the lock barrel in my old ignition? I kind guess not but maybe you know better....?

Other possible option I would think might be feasible would be using an ignition/steering lock unit from a tdci in my truck or is it totally different?

Will

The tumblers in the TD5 barrel locks can be modified to work with your ignition key.

How did this work long term? Did you use the old wafers or get new ones?

My only concern about this technique (only if you used the old wafers) would be in areas where the door keys would have had a high spot and your old key has a low spot that the wafer would be a bit loosey goosey or even fall too far in and jam over the long term. Maybe I'm way off base?

I've had no issues at all ... the wafers are spring loaded so the scenario you are describing doesn't occur.

I took all the wafers out and got the best fit possible and then had some minor trimming to do.

To be honest I'd forgotten i'd even done this until you posted the question.
