    I don't think you understood the question. I have the same problem. The steering wheel is removed, there is a plate under it, after you remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. The plate is the next problem, once the steering wheel is off. I had to go and get a pivot pin remover to loosen the pins on the side, however that did work neither. I still can't get the plate off!.

It is held in with a bolt. You need to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, and turn signal switch to gain access. You will need special puller for the steering wheel and a special tool for removing the lock plate.

How to change ignition barrel


You have to remove the Airbag, so take the negative lead off the truck battery. Remove the airbag. remove the steering wheel. You will need a steering wheel puller or some good luck in getting it off without one. Under the steering wheel you will have a retaining plate. It has a spring clip around the center shaft that has to be removed. not real easy. it has a big spring behind the plate you'll have to contend with. Once you get the clip off, remove the plate.You'll have to remove the screws holding the turn signal stalk in place. Remove the screw holding the ignition cylinder in place. The whole thing should slide out now.

How do you remove the ignition lock cylinder on a 1991 chevy cavalier


The ignition switch removal and installation procedure is given in , under steering, because the steering wheel must be removed for access to the ignition switch.

To remove the ignition lock:
CAUTION
You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.
