You will have to use a ouller to remove the steering wheel. Often many parts houses will rent or loan a tool.

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban


The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free

My key wont turn in the ignition


Either the key is worn, the lock barrel is worn or the steering lock is engaged.

The last one can be solved by pulling down or pushing up one side of the steering wheel as you try to turn the key; this tales the load off the steering lock allowing it to disengage.

The only other fix is to try any spare keys which you have for the car. If they work then your main key needs to be replaced. If not then you need to have the ignition key barrel and possibly the entire steering lock assembly professionally replaced. As your car is an older model a garage may be able to permanently disable your steering lock as a cheaper fix if that's where the issue lies, but you'll then find that your insurance company will want to increase your premiums or even refuse cover. If your keys are chipped immobiliser keys then they may all need to be reprogrammed to the car as part of the repair job.

My car won't turn on, the key doesn't turn at all, it seems to be locked


Sometimes if you remove the key from the ignition while you still have tension on the steering wheel it will lock up the ignition. Try pulling on the steering wheel left and right while trying to turn the ignition key. Good luck.

get a phillipshead un do about 4 screws from underneath plastic cover which hides steering colume. remove cover you will see white plug on the left hand side of ignition barrel disconect.then right hand side there will be acable disconect.now get a small chissel and anti clockwise tap bolts which have no heads on them that are on top of steering colume when they are alittle bit lose use plyers its easier pull bolts out clamp will then come of and then you can pull whole ignition of. now there is 2 brass pins which hold barrel in ignition up near the key end remove and barrel will come out but it might be easier to take whole ignition to locksmith and get them to do it and get new key for around 30 bucks i did a mates about couple months ago seeya orangepeel.

Starts if you turn steering wheel


I will take a guess at this. You can't turn the key until you turn the steering wheel a little to the left or the right? This is usually caused by friction on the steering locking mechanism which keeps the key from turning in order to start the car. If this is not the case then you may have a bad ignition switch or cable head connecting to the switch that is not making contact until you move the steering wheel around and it makes contact allowing you to start the vehicle. Good Luck, RAC

Fussy old bugger, when's the last time you had a front end alignment? Has it always been off center? Have you had any front end work done (tie rods replaced etc?) If the steering wheel has never been off, it shouldn't have to be removed now (unless it was installed improperly at the factory-doubtful) Yes you MUST disable the air bag to remove steering wheel. Any chance the car hit a curb, pot hole, etc? !st thing should be an alignment at a good garage, they should be able to find any damage to front end components caused by a pothole/curb. correct, and align. That should correct the position of the steering wheel and make you a smiling fussy old bugger. countrycurt0 PS-I'm a fussy old bugger too.
