SOURCE: Removal of 1998 toyota cressida ignition key cylinder.

This car has drillable shear pin screws on the bottom of the lock yoke you must drill these out.
then release the clip to the cylinder. you must get a new set of break-off shear pin head screws from the dealer to finish the job.

How do i take out my ignition key lock cylinder


There is a pin in the lock cylinder that needs to be depressed to release the cylinder from its bore. The only problem is the cylinder needs to be able to be turned in order for the pin to be depressed. There will be a small hole either on the top or bottom of the cylinder for inserting a small pick to push the pin for cylinder release. If the cylinder will not turn, the pin cannot be released for removal.

I have a 93 explorer sport and I swear that there is no hole to access this release pin to the ignition lock. I see the tube that angles toward the ignition but no hole at all. Infact I see a round...


Do you have the plastic upper and lower covers removed from the column? If not, remove them with a phillips screwdriver. The hole where the punch, small screwdriver or whatever you use to depress the pin that releases the ignition lock cylinder is underneath the metal housing where the lock cylinder resides. You must turn the lock cylinder w/the key in it to run and then DEPRESS the pin, the lock cylinder should then come straight out when you pull on it. Drill it out if necessary if they missed it when they made it. Never seen that and I worked on Ford vehicles for years in the 90's. Good luck.

Ignition key switch


You have to use a pin or paper lip to insert in hole in igmition switch to release the lock cylinder. The key has to be in "on" position I think.

Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301) .
  1. Turn lock cylinder key to RUN position.
  1. Place a 3.17mm (1/8-inch) diameter wire pin or small drift punch in hole in upper steering column shroud (3530) under ignition switch . Press retaining pin while pulling out on ignition switch to remove it from lock cylinder housing (22074) .
Installation
  1. Install ignition switch by turning it to RUN position and pressing retaining pin. Insert ignition switch into lock cylinder housing . Ensure ignition switch is fully seated and aligned in interlocking washer before turning key to OFF position. This will permit cylinder retaining pin to extend into lock cylinder housing hole.
  1. Rotate ignition switch, using lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  1. Connect battery ground cable.

1994 ford explorer replacing ignition lock cylinder


T Worthingtons post was spot on. After having spent numerous hours looking for the mysterious hole and searching many on line forums I arrived here. The access tube is on the right side a little below the centerline of the lock cylinder and indeed at an angle. Some 1/8 welding rod or wire can sneak between the steering wheel and the tube. Put the switch in the run position and you can feel the cylinder release. Thanks much for the correct post.
