SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: stuck ignition cylinder 1992 ford taurus

It is not necessary to have the dealer do this, think of the cash! Though it does require patience and time. The pin you are supposed to push in goes into a slot when you have it in run position, since you cannot turn it to run you have to make a slot for the pin to go into, with a drill. Be very careful as you only have a 1/4" of play before you break a washer behind the cylinder. Once you have drilled out the key far enough to the pin hole you can take a nail set and tap the pin up, you can tell when the pin clears the housing, then it just takes wiggle, patience and tinkering to get the cylinder to slide out, keep the green washer and the metal slot washer. Metal slot washer goes in first with green plastic washer ontop of that with lock cylinder in last. You can play around with the new lock cylinder and washer before insertion to determin correct direction.

Here are official directions with inoperable lock cylinder. They say drill out retaining pin but it just spun in circles for me - I looked at new cylinder and saw how it worked. retaining pin needs a place to go.
Removal & Installation (Non-Functional)
NOTE:Use this procedure to remove ignition lock cylinder if key is missing or cylinder is frozen.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Disable air bag system. See appropriate AIR BAG RESTRAINT SYSTEMS article in RESTRAINTS. Wait at least one minute for air bag back-up power supply to deplete. Remove steering wheel. See STEERING WHEEL . Using a 1/8" bit, drill out retaining pin located below lock cylinder on housing. DO NOT drill deeper than 1/2".
Using channel lock pliers, twist lock cylinder cap until it separates from lock cylinder. Using a 3/8" drill bit, drill down center of ignition lock key slot about 1 3/4" until lock cylinder breaks loose from its base.
Remove retainer, washer, and lock cylinder gear from housing. Remove metal shavings from lock cylinder bore. Replace housing if damaged. To install, reverse removal procedure. Connect negative battery cable. Check air bag system for proper system operation. See appropriate AIR BAG RESTRAINT SYSTEMS article in RESTRAINTS.

SOURCE: how do I change ignition switch on a 1994 ford

Using the correct ignition key, put the key in the ignition switch and turn to the accessory or on position. look under the switch on the underside of the column and you will see a small hole. Use a small poke tool like an awe or a big stout paperclip and push the pin. you will feel it move when you poke it. pull the ignition switch out with key still in it. The switch has to be turned in order to get it out smoothly without damage. Please leave feedback to let other know if this helps your situation. I know this will as I replace ford switches daily. Thanks

Lock cylinder is not properly engaging the ignition switch. There is a pushrod from the end of the lock cylinder that moves the slider on the switch. Make sure the pushrod is properly connected to both the cylinder and the switch.

I need to remove the ignition switch from a Ford F-150. The ignition key is missing. Acting on the advice of a locksmith, I was advised to drill through the wafers in the lock in order to turn it to the...

no, you have to have the switch in the on position, you either have to drill the ignition out (1/2" drillbit) or chisel the tumblers out of the cylinder... using excessive force may break the column...which is definatly way more $ than a lock cylinder. to be safe i would just use the chisel method... if you drill too far you will ruin the column also
