Question about 1996 Honda Prelude
My key won't turn in the ignition, and the steering is locked.
I have taken the other side of the ignition apart and put a screwdriver in the plastic bit to get the car started but the steering is still locked......how do i get the steering lock off?????????
Please can u help??
at least you were able to remove the ignition switch already.
the next step is to remove the special bolt that they used to hold the ignition lock at the steering, you can replace them anytime with ordinary bolts after you repair the ignition lock. they are like cone head which no tools could hold unto them( to prevent burglars from stealing your car) think of a way to remove these two bolts. either you cut them with a hack saw or use vice grip pliers or chisel it with a metal chisel and hammer.
after you removed the bolts, the pin and the key assembly can be removed and it would unlock your steering wheel.
