There are threads and videos on re-keying a top box but I haven't seen anything on pannier re-keying. It may well be the same as the top box but I'm not sure.

I've done it and it is not difficult to do.

Don't forget that if you decide to sell your bike and want to keep the panniers then you need to take the lock barrels out and leave them out until they are matched to the new bike keys.

Before you take the key out of the barrel run some tape around the outside unless you want lots of loose springs and levers. If need be the odd lever can be left out if you don't have the correct levers to choose from. Not so secure but who would know.

Thanks for the link.  I've just taken my barrel out, it was surprisingly easy to do after a bit of prodding.  Total 9 screws removed and five minutes effort.

Unfortunately that guy links to two external sites for the rekeying... which are both dead now :(.  I'll update this thread as and when I find a more alive one. 

I'll also take photos if I remember and see about making my own tutorial (read: I'll probably forget this step and drink beer instead).

Edit: or just look here:

Basically when the key is inserted in the cylinder, as shown in this photo, then the correct lever will not protrude.

Hey,

Yep I've got the barrels out for both panniers now.  My only problem is that when I remove the key the tumblers just stay in.  I've tried pulling them out with needle nose pliers to no avail.

Everything I read says they'll spring out!

Hm, the end posts of this thread implies the barrels changed.  Mine is the one with the chrome end cap on and presumably the brass rod holding the pins in.

This might take a while to remove, it's crimped on.

Not seen that. Mine is the type without a retaining rod.

Sounds like a money-making scheme to me.

Well after a bit of hitting it with a hammer and driving stuff between the edge of the chrome cap and the lock proper I managed to pop it off.  There's a thin rod that when removed allows everything to pop out.

Now I'm just leaving both lock barrels and everything laid out waiting for the arrival of the new key to code them to!
