You need to remove the small metal ring that retains the lock mechanism, then remove the turn signal switch (3 bolts, move it up or down to access 2 of them). You will then see a torx bolt that retains your tumbler.

Remove ignition key and tumbler
Remove T/S switch you should be able to get to top brng
Disengage tilt wheel spring
Take apart dimmer switch assy ( remember how it goes)
Remove 4 bolts connecting collar to steering shaft

Key stuck in ignition -- cannot turn on or off. Can an ignition switch cause the tumbler to lock up? Or does the ignition tumbler need to be replaced? If the ignition tumbler needs to be replaced, how...


lets start simple.get a can of silacone spray oil and spray into the switch and keep moving key and you will find this will reliese the key,if you need to remove the ign switch dont panic as its a simple enough job.Forget about steering wheel and whatever,simply remove the outer plastic cover then this exposes the switch at the back of switch is a plug with wires pull it away ,then below the key you should see a tiny screw undo, and make sure the steering lock is not under pressure,ie steering wheel free,when trying to remove switch move steering wheel back/forward and switch should pull out.good luck.adrian,,,,

The ignition switch had been busted with a screwdriver. I need to replace the old one, but I am unsure how the remove it from the steering column.


disconnect the batt. remove the horn pad, remove clip that retains the steering nut and remove nut, use a puller to remove steering wheel, the compress the locking plate with tool, and remove c clip from the column, remove 4 way flasher button and signal arm, then remove signal switch, should be enough play to just wing it out of the way, then remove the pin that holds the tumbler in, turn to the on position and it should just slide out, then reverse the process,

Cant figure out how to remove the steering wheel and air bag in i


disconnect negitive battery cable. Remove screws holding air bag to steer wheel. Disconect wires to air bag being. I must stop now. Playing with air bags can result in injury or death. You should have a shop do that for you. Sorry for not helping.
