First you need to go to the local parts store and get a steering wheel puller and a clock spring compressor tool. You can rent them but just cheaper to buy it and return it. I got mind like 35 bucks together.
You will remove the horn button just by pulling it towards you be careful not to rip the horn wire out. Next there may be a retainer clip remove it with a pair of needle nose pliers. Next get a breaker bar or a impact gun to back the center nut off. Once off use the steering wheel puller by inserting the threaded bolts into the threaded holes directly beside the center pin. ease the puller onto the center pin and tighten down until the steering wheel starts to move back towards you continue until off. On some trucks there is a steel plate covering the housing to the left side and towards the top are two small torx screws remove them and remove the cover. Next grab your clock spring compressor and install it similar to the way you did the wheel puller you will tighten down the center bolt slightly decompressing the clock spring. as you compress the clock spring look to the center there is a small retainer clip that looks like it is made into the center pin pry the clip off making sure not to damage it and remove the compressor tool, remove the clock spring making sure to pay attention on how it comes apart you can put it all back together. Remove the turn signal switch should be 3 phillips head screws. You may need to disconnect the horn wire at this point it just turns slightly and pulls out. After you remove the clock spring you will see the lock cylinder body, follow the body towards the center pin. There will be a small torx bit or a phillips screw to it will be silver and very shinny at the end of the lock housing remove it and slide the lock cylinder out. Install the new one and reverse the steps.
hope this helps...........good luck!

I need to replace a power steering pump on a 1992 Olds Cutlass Ciera. How does one tackle that problem?


First you will need a pulley remover/installer. Remove the power steering belt, remove bolts holding the pump, remove p/s lines, replace in reverse order,and fill pump. Start car and move steering wheel back and forth slightly, then turn the wheel all the way stop to stop Always watch that there is plenty of fluid in the reservoir. Check with dip stick, should be full to bottom mark;

Ignition switch won't shut off on my 92 olds cutlass


Your 1992 Cutlass was the last model year not to require the drivers side air bag...You can access the ignition switch (needs replaced) by removing the steering wheel...you will need a puller to do this...as this is more than you want to do...many local locksmith shops offer this service...much less costly than a dealership...plenty of parts for your pristine Olds Cutlass are available...:) Hope this helps...

1992 Olds cutlass ciera s V6 3.3 won't start. Starter and battery working properly and tried to putting car in neutral and nothing happens. any ideas to try next?


You need to test your mechanical ignition switch located on top of the steering column by your feet. Remove bottom panel below steering column then 2 or 4 nuts holding column to dash. Lower steering column - the rectangular component with the metal rod going in the back side ( goes toward the steering wheel ) is the mechanical ignition switch. Disconnect and inspect harness for corrosion and dirty contacts.If the contacts are clean ( not green, white, or burnt) then look closely at the mounting screws to see if there are marks from where they were originally mounted - it is possible the switch moved away from the steering wheel which would keep that metal bar from activating the start circuit. If the switch moved, loosen mount screws and move switch back to original spot. If the switch didn't move then you can try starting the car with the key and moving that metal arm manually, pushing it toward the engine to activate start circuit. The switch MUST be mounted to the steering column for the circuit to be open ( complete) as the ground is supplied through the mount screws. If this still doesn't work then replace the switch.
Good luck!!

1994 cutlass ciera ignition switch. how do i get to it to get it out?


Drop the steering wheel down and you can access the switch. Just remove the dash cover to access the bolts holding the steering wheel in place. Once you remove those 2 bolts the steering wheel will fall toward the seat.
