    Pannier lock lying on garage floor!

    Just washed the bike and left panniers in sunlight to dry off.
    Now then I noticed that the pannier lock was out its housing and a few of the components lying on the garage floor.

    Found all that I think I am going to find, springs for all the sleeves expect the end one and it won't go back as I suspect it is bent?
    What do you think.

    The Bike is still under warranty so will have a chat with Bmw in due course.
    But was hoping I could fix myself.

    It is bent, as you suspect. The legs should be parallel. The wafers are made of brass and not difficult to straighten although it might break before getting to the straight position. You could probably get away with half a leg on that side because the spring acts on the other side.
    I imagine your dealer will have plenty of spares so probably not worth the risk of a dodgy wafer becoming stuck in the barrel or lock housing.

    Someone’s been at it. Maybe to recode the locks if bought second hand? JJH

    I presume lock was coded by dealer, maybe not re attached correctly after the coding?

    The plate in the picture looks different to the ones I've ever seen. On all the locks I've worked on (true, not an insane number of locks).

    The plates I've seen have all been like a rectangle, I.e not sort of U shaped, but rather the sidewalls are connected also at the bottom.

    The design may of course been changed, but at least there must be a spring.
    Anyway, as far as I can see, there is only one solution: Contact the dealer....

    Think it’s missing the locking tumbler that sits at the end of the barrel to prevent it coming out when you remove the key.

    I think they call it a lock pawl in the attached link. Unless the design has changed. I heard the latest tumblers have lots more variety and variations.

    The retaining disc is always open at the bottom, it’s to stop someone using a probe to push into the key way and pull down the retainer and remove the barrel.
    The drive on the back of the barrel has some damage that can’t occur in normal use, looks like it’s been gripped with something and filed maybe.

    Found the spring, it was mangled.
    Aye call to the dealer as under warranty will suffice.
    Will have all the locks checked, cleaned etc
    Thanks for comments etc..

    As F8 GS says, the locking wafer is missing.

    Lock

    Here you go, the locking wafer (or tumbler) is the one at the point of the lower pen. This is the one that locks the barrel into the housing and stops it falling out.
