Remove cyl from column, replace cyl body only, carefully remove each tumbler with a small screw driver clean and lube to install in same position on new cyl one at a time,cyl housing wears out first,no need to replace tumblers.

How to replace ignition switch/tumbler on a 1995 Ford Bronco

Do you still have the ignition key and will the ignition key cylinder switch turn? If so, you turn the key to Run, press the button on the bottom of the steering column that's accessible once the shroud is removed, then pull the key and cylinder switch out of the column.

If you no longer have a working key, then things get a bit more tricky.

I don't recall what year Ford started using the PATS system, but if your 1995 has PATS you'll need to have the PATS module reprogrammed to the new key before the car will start.

Can bent tumblers be fixed in ignition?

The short answer is yes but it may not be practical.
A locksmith can take the cylinder apart and replace the pins if he has access to new pins.

How to remove ignition cylinder

I have done lots of these because the key is hard to turn and you must "WIGGLE AND SHAKE" to get your car started. If this is the problem you are experiencing, then:

Yes, you can replace just the ignition lock cylinder. I recommend using the AC Delco lock cylinder kits. (AC Delco Part Number D1493F) They come with packages of numbered tumblers (which must be assembled) so the new cylinder can be configured to accept your existing Ignition key.

If you replace the entire ignition switch/lock cylinder assembly, your computer will have to be reprogrammed so your engine will start and run. (Not to mention, this is the expensive way to do it.)

You must remove both your instrument cluster and your radio to access the mounting screws and elecrical connectors for the switch/tumbler assembly. It is not real hard to do, but assembling the new tumblers into the new cylinder can be kind of tedious. (As well as extremely frustrating if you do not do it correctly.)

I have a 2005 Malibu and been having recurring problems with the key not turning in the ignition. It happens about once every two weeks and it's a real pain in the **** because I have to fiddle with it and...

I would replace the ignition cylinder. the tumbler are wearing funny and this is causing the key to not turn or get stuck . I believe you have a pass key system on your car too . so after the cylinder is replace or rebuild you may need to do a relearn with the new lock cylinder. Not sure if you can rebuild the key cylinder and if a lock smith would have the right tumbler codes . but i know for sure if you buy the lock cylinder from a dealership they can code the tumbler to match the original key

You basically have to take the whole steering wheel apart to get to the tumbler. You should go buy a manual for your car and it will show details.
