SOURCE: broken ignition barrel ford laser 1989 model

Hi,

this is the procedure to remove the ignition barrel:

Remove the steering column surround and you should see a black round thing on the left hand side, this is the ignition switch. Remove this and you will see there is one screw holding the ignition barrel on, remove and you then need to insert your key and turn it to the ACC position. you should now be able to withdraw the barrel using the key but take care not to snap the key off in the barrel.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution as fixya.

Goodluck..

SOURCE: What is proper way to remove and replace ignition barrel?

You will have to take apart the steering column, breaking it down to the switch in order to get it out. I hope you have a lot of patience.

SOURCE: how to replace lower ball

Hi Dazza

The tool you're looking for is called a pickle fork. (A.K.A. ball joint separator).

  1. Get a new one
  2. pull the cotter pin
  3. Loosen and remove nut
  4. Insert pickle fork above ball joint
  5. Hit it with a hammer
  6. When it drops, unscrew it from the sleeve
  7. Put new one in
Then have an alignment done

\Best regards
Mike

SOURCE: changed the ignition barrel on

Hi

I presume you had this issue with the old ignition just spinning around and not starting the car? I had this same thing and chnaged the ignition over, still would not work got lights but no engine turn over, I took it back off and realigned it, turns out when I had removed the old one the position of the black box part was one turn behind so when I was tuning the key it was not getting to the turn the engine over part just the ignition lights.

Also some of these ignition barrels have a black shroud around them inside that is the immobilizer code for the transponder you will need to swap that for you origional one, you will be able to tell if it has one as there would be a wired plug going to it, if no plug then your model does not have it.

I hope that helps, I know its a bit of a mess on but most likely will just need removing and refitting.

Regards
Dan

How do yah replace the the ignition barral in falcon


I assume you're talking about an older model falcon/antique? If so... Insert the key and push a paper clip/stiff wire into the hole on the front of the barrel close to the key slot. It should turn backwards I believe and slip right out.

Your ford dealer visit may not be as expensive as you think, you need 2 pats keys and have them perform an ignition key code erase then they should be able to program your 2 new keys, The Ford Dealer I work at only charges 0.5hrs or approx $50.00 dollars Canadian.
