Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
I need to replace the whole ignition switch and holding bracket assembly
Hi Bruntwood, Disconnect the battery, and then unscrew the screws fitted underneath which hold the plastic cowling surrounding the steering column and then remove the two halves. Disconnect the electrical socket from the plug and then identify the four blind bolts holding the saddle of the ignition barrel and switch. There are a few ways of removing those bolts, but the easiest is to tap them out with the correct sized cold chisel. Once removed the ignition barrel and switch can then be removed and replaced. Assembly is the reverse procedure. Regards and have a happy new ignition barrel and switch and new year. John

No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

SOURCE: Ignition switch removal
get a proper steering wheel puller, pull the steering wheel off. remove the screw for the hazard switch. remove 1 screw and a metal bracket for the signal switch. remove 3 screws holding the white switch in top of column. Then you need to pull this switch up out of the way, but in order to do this without wrecking it, you need to remove the plastic panels underneith the column to get at the column mounting bolts. there should be 2 13mm nuts holding the column to the dash. remove these. then there should be 4 13mm bolts holding the bracket to the column. remove these and there should be a plastic casing that th wires go through. remove this and unplug the wiring. now you can push the wiring up and out of the way without wrecking your signal switch. now remove 1 philips head screw holding the ignition switch in place and pry it out gently with a flat screwdriver.
installation is reverse procedure of removal

Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Before continuing with this procedure, make sure to have available a new steering wheel retaining bolt and two lock cylinder retaining bolts. Once removed, these parts lose their torque holding ability (or retention capability) and must not be reused.
Unfasten the ignition and shifter interlock cable mounting bracket bolt, and position the assembly to one side
Use a chisel and hammer to cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts-1991-96 models shown; 1997-99 models similar
