You will need a lock plate tool once you have taken the lock plate off you need to take the three screws out of the turn signal switch and unscrew the turn signal handle. when you have done this do not pull it out yet. you need to go under the dash and look for the group of wires that run up your steering column. you'll have to unplug them to get enough wire to lift the turn signal switch out. Do not pull these wires all the way out just enough to lay the thing out of the way. Ok once thats done right above the ignition tumblers is either a screw or a tiny indent hole you will have to knock open hopefully its just a screw that just holds it in.
Ok thats enough for now

One other thing the emergency flasher switch has one screw in the middle just unscrew it

Where can I view a 1993 buick regal ignition removal instructions video? I have been trying but I am getting the run around.

Are you wanting to remove the ignition switch or the key cylinder? If it is the key cylinder and you have a tilt wheel, you'll need to rent the special tools necessary to remove the steering wheel and all the components under it to expose the cylinder. You'll have to disable the air bags before you do anything. The best way to do the job is to get a repair manual for the car at an auto parts store. It will give you a step by step instruction on how to do both the ignition switch and the key cylinder.

How do I replace the ignition switch. Key in place, will not turn back to the off positiom, stuck in run. 1993 Chev Silvarado

It is held in with a bolt. You need to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, and turn signal switch to gain access. You will need special puller for the steering wheel and a special tool for removing the lock plate.

I have a 1993 buick regal and the key will not turn. We have not had any problems till now. We have tried moving steering wheel and nothing seems to help.

it could be a worn out key -- or a worn out / broken wafer in the lock cylinder,, or even just a stuck wafer (?) --
one thing you can try is to squirt a small amount of lubrication into the lock and cycle the key in and out a few times and see if it will free up. the next thing you can try is to look at your key and see if it looks worn,, if it does then you can have a locksmith shop try and read the key and cut you a key to factory specs,, this might work. the next thing is to just have a locksmith come out to your vehicle and replace the ignition switch and it will come with 2 new keys.. OR you yourself can tear down the steering wheel and replace the switch yourself. the new switches can be bought at your local auto parts store ( you will also want to buy the steering wheel puller and the compression plate compression tool to make sure you stay safe and ease in the removal and re-assembly of the sterring wheel parts ) -- ( these tools can also be rented from certain auto tool shops ).
