Question about 1983 Jeep CJ7
Cannot get switch out of steering column
First thing I would say is you should pickup a repair book like CHILTONS for your year make and model of jeep it will give you step by step instructions. On most older jeeps to remove the key switch you must first pull the steering wheel (steering wheel puller needed) then horn contact under that, then the turn signal switch under that, under that you will find a spring loaded security plate that must be pushed in and held untill you remove the split ring around the steering shaft that holds the plate in ( it's not easy it's a STRONG spring and it takes three hands with two strong thumbs to compress the plate and spring and another hand with a small screwdriver to remove the ring. (They do make a small cheap tool to compress and hold the spring but if you have strong thumbs it can be done without the tool) once you remove that plate you will see a small flathead allen screww along side the key switch remove it and the switch should pull out. Some must be turned to the run position to pull out but Im not sure about your year.
