How do you remove the ignition lock cylinder on a 1991 chevy cavalier


The ignition switch removal and installation procedure is given in , under steering, because the steering wheel must be removed for access to the ignition switch.

To remove the ignition lock:
CAUTION
You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.

Changing turn signal switch 1986 lincoln town car.


Get a manual like chiltons or haynes to guide you through this one...Air bag needs to be disabled and yes, wheel needs to be removed.You will need a wheel puller and a tool to remove the steering lock plate. The arm either unscrews from or is screwed to the switch...either way, it's removable.

ReplacingTurn Switch


1. You are going to need a steering wheel puller.
2. You remove the steering wheel center.

3. you remove the large steering column nut, then install steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. It is necessary to mark the shaft to the steering wheel so that it will go back in the same position.

Once the steering wheel is removed, you can see the turn signal switch. There is one center screw that holds the turn signal switch inside the steering wheel hub.

Once the screw is removed the signal can be lifted up over the steering wheel shaft.

Now leaving that, go underneather the dash area and remove the smallpanel around the steering wheel shaft. There you will find a large electrical connector with all the wires that are used in the steering column. This connector can either be fed up thru the column or by disconnecting all of the wires and feeding them up through the column.

this will remove the old switch. The new switch and its wiring harness must now be fed back down the steering column and then reconnected to the large electrical connector.

Now re-install the new switch, screw the turn signal stem back into the switch assembly and the re-install the steering wheel, according to the aligments marks you made, otherwise your steering wheel will be off centered. Tighten down steering wheel center nut, and other panels. Check operation of switch.
Factory manuel gives mechanics 1 hour to do this, but it cam take up to 4 hours.

Turn signal switch


'm not sure but I'll put in my 2 cents worth.

I changed a turn signal switch on an older model and it wasn't too difficult. First you have to remove the horn button or top center piece of the steering wheel. There should be screws from the bottom side that you remove to do this. Once you get that off there is simply a large nut in the center than needs to be removed that holds the steering wheel on. [I did not need any sort of steering wheel puller.] Once the steering wheel is off you'll see how the turn signal switch is attached. its simply a matter of disconnecting the wires and removing screws and then putting everything back together. Make sure you get the steering wheel properly positioned. Before you start simply make sure the wheel is positioned in the straight ahead position.
