Tip & How-To about Toyota Corolla
When changing an igintion:
1. Upon purchasing new one, be sure to provide as much information as possible about the vehicle. Engine size, year, make model, automatic or manual, transmission size, etc.
2. Make sure you pay attention to how the old ignition is removed, as the installation is usually the reverse of removal. Most ignitions will require the key being turned to remove old one, and install new one.
3. Be sure you disconnect the battery as a safety precaution as with all electrical repairs on automotives.
4. It is best to have a repair manual handy incase any problem arise during the removal and installation process, and it is best to read and understand any and all instructions provided prior to attempting such repairs. This is true for any and all repairs.
If at any point you have any uncertainties, inquire with a mechanic or an auto parts dealer, dealership mechanic, or any knowledgable expert here on Fixya.com. When in doubt, ask. There is no such thing as a stupid question and we are all here to help you solve your automotive questions and concerns.
