Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
How do you replace a igniton lock cylinder on a 1998 toyota corolla?
You can do this one yourself if you want it does not require removing the steering wheel. just the plastic housing from the steering column.
remove housing/cover. then look at housing with cylinder lock assem. on bottom about 1.2 inches or so from the end of the lock assembly you will see a very small hole insert metal pin into hole and push in while turning the key in the ignition backwards to accessory positionyou will feel the pin your pushing move in a bit, then you should be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. insert new assembly with key in the same position and turn forward this will install your new assemlby then reassemble your plastic column covers.

Crbbndt's solution is perfect. Just be aware that if you have trouble getting the new assembly back in, you may need to use a pair of long nose pliers to turn the blade inside the receiver hole back to the aux position from off. They sometimes turn them selves to the off position during the removal
