If you want to remove the plastic cover, look for some screws from the bottom part of that plastic cover. there are about 4 screws. you ,may need a long philips screw driver. after you remove the screw, the top cover could slide out off the key lock assembly.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Remove headlight assembly from 2006 Lincoln town car


I've done it so many times for exact 2006 TC.

1. Remove black plastic cover if it's equipped by twisting 5 fashioners.

Those are looked like screws but plastic fashioners.

2. Remove 3 screws (two on top one on bottom) Do not touch adjuster screw.

3. push down plastic hook between two top screws and pull whole assy. be careful not to make scratch on bumper.

Remove wire connector before you pull it out completely.

4. After you remove assy, take 6~8 screws on back cover, then you will see light valves.

I have problem to upload pictures now.

I will upload them as comment to myself.

I cannot get the plastic around the steering column off a 1985 jetta to replace the ignition. can you help with answers to remove this and the lock assy

  1. Remove the steering wheel, then remove the steering column covers.
  2. Remove the turn signal and wiper switches.
  3. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  4. On some models, the hole in the lock body for removing the ignition lock cylinder was not drilled by Volkswagen. To make the hole, use the following measurements in conjunction with the illustrations. Drill the hole where "a" and "b" intersect on the lock body. The hole should be drilled 0.19 in. (3mm) deep.

    1974-77 Dasher-a= 0.45 in. (11.5mm) b= 0.32 in. (8mm) 1975-76 Rabbit, Scirocco-a= 0.43 in. (11mm) b=0.43 in. (11 mm) 1977-89 Rabbit, Jetta, Scirocco and 1978 and later Dasher, Quantum and Fox-a= 0.47 in. (12mm) b= 0.39 in. (10mm)

Fig. Fig. 2: Lock cylinder drill point on other models

  1. Remove the lock cylinder by pushing a small drill bit or piece of wire into the hole and pulling the cylinder out. It might be easier to insert the ignition key, turn it to the right a little and pull on it.

To install:
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the housing with the key in the cylinder.
  2. While gently turning the key side-to-side, press the cylinder in to the stop. It should click into place.
  3. Temporarily fit the steering wheel onto the splines, then make sure the column locks and unlocks smoothly.
  4. Install the switches, column covers, wiring and the steering wheel.
  5. Connect the battery cable.

Something is broken inside ignition switch housing.


The ignition crank shaft is broken inside the Steering Column Lock Assy. You will need to buy a new assy (cost appr. $202.21) and 2 steering lock bolts (cost appr. $4.96 ea) at a Toyota or Lexus dealer. Call either dealer for best price and availability. To replace you'll need to remove the black snap-on panel below speedometer then remove the screws securing the driver side dash. Behind the dash is a steel plate. Remove that and remove the steering column covers by turning the steering wheel to access the screws. You'll see that the SCLA is secured by 2 break-away bolt (this is an anti-theft feature). Use a dremel tool with cutting disc to make a notch in the screw head to remove with a flathead screwdriver. If this doesn't work your other option is to cut the bolts where the assy bolts together. Remove the broken SCLA and remove the key FOB and install into new SCLA. If your mechanically incline this should take about 2-3 hrs. and save you $300-400 in labor cost. Part numbers are same at Toyota and Lexus dealers.

Steering Column Lock Assy: 45280-60510

Steering Lock Bolt: 45897-12020 (need qty. 2)

E300D Headlight Lens installation


First you have to remove the turn signal lamp. There is a plastic release tang that you push one way and pull the turn signal out. Next you have to remove the filler panel below the headlight assy to gain access to the bottom bolt. 2 screws hold the filler in place. There is also a black plastic filler panel that is pinned to the headlight assy remove it. There are 3 or 4  bolts that hold the headlamp assy in place 2 on top 1 on bottom actually it might be 2 on the bottom. (old age memory loss LOL) remove the bolts and remove the headlamp assy. The lens is held in by plastic clips just pry up gently on the locking clips and remove the lens. I hope this helps. It fairly easy and you should be able to DIY. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
