I lost the key i had to my98 lincon navigator. How would i remove the old switch?

You can't just throw a switch in it, the new key has to be programmed or the car will not start, you need the dealer to make the key and program it or you can call a locksmith. The selling dealer will have your key code recorded, call them for that code

Lost keys require new locks for BMW X3

replacing the complete lock set with the EWS control unit can be expensive as the control unit will also need to be programed and/or encoded, however if the lost keys cannot be found and you are sure they cannot be used to steel you car you can just order replacement keys from your local bmw dealer. hope this is of some help. You will also nead to disable the lost keys if you order replacements rather than a complete set.
