Ignition switch & flapper box..

Hi guys, bit of a noob and not a mechanic, so please forgive me..

I have spent hours searching this great forum though. I'm so glad that i have a 930, and that there are still so many enthusiasts..

I have 2 questions on my 81 uk 930.

1. My ignition key / switch is shot. It turns ok to position 2? But when I turn it further to actually start cranking it jams and can take 5+ goes back and forth.. I have a friend who is a locksmith who can renew the internals but is it hard to get out so I can take the barrel unit to him? Are there loads of wires to disconnect or is it a simple harness clip thing? Ive had a good look under the dash, but it's a mass of wires all neatly cable tied, and I don't want to snip all the ties without knowing what to expect.

2. I have auto heat, which I know is a pain.. Heat won't come on. Before I remove / check the control box, can someone tell me / show me a pic of where the "flapper box" things are - I know a lot of posts say to check they haven't rusted shut - I just don't know where to look!

Thanks guys.

1. yes there are some wires to disconnect from ignition, i just removed mine for a dash project, just make sure you put some tape on everything and mark them with numbers,..that way when you put it back, there is no confusion,

i dont know about refreshing the internals, maybe someone else can help there...

2. my car had auto heat, i didnt even bother to mess with anything, i ripped everything out, and "backdated" my heat, now just two levers between the seat by the ebrake that you pull up when you want heat...nice and simple...

flapper boxes can only be seen under the car with it jacked up
