You don't have to remove the steering wheel. Remove the column bezel. 3 or 4 screws on the bottom to get it apart. Then insert the key and turn it the run position. The is a hole on top of the lock cylinder insert small rod in it and push down. Pull the key cylinder out. The you can release the switch. The is a special tool to do it, but you can use 2 screwdrivers. how do i remove steering wheel to change ignition  - 5c8b986d-fd3c-46df-8451-9ad5da4a5ad2.gif f3f09afd-e874-49c0-bd66-5d61b385e24f.gif

Don't remove the lock cylinder! just break out the small plastic insert inside the upper panel where it slides over the lock cylinder and once its together you will be happy with the ease of installation and the ignition where the key goes in covers up the whole where that little bit of plastic once was

There is a special tool that compresses this spring.It mounts on the steering shaft threads and pushes on the plate.It is quite difficult without but can be done with two persons as one presses and the other removes the lock ring...good luck

SOURCE: How do I remove the steering wheel from a 1997 Chevy blazer?


Hi,

If you are trying to remove the steering wheel to change the ignition switch, then you may not have to. The switch is on the steering column about 1/2 down towards the floor, and has a rod that runs from the key cylinder & locking part. You dont need to remove the steering wheel, but if you do so, I suggest you to take some help from some Paint and Body shop so that they can direct you to do it properly and safely.

Do let me know if it helped.

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?


Hi there,

Removal

Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.

Installation

Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to remove and install the ignition switch.


Removal
1.1
Disconnect the car's negative battery cable.
2.2
Insert the key into the lock cylinder and turn it to the Accessory position--turn it to the left. Make sure the front wheels are facing straight ahead before you do this.

4.4
Remove the steering wheel--unplug the electrical connector to the horn and cruise control, remove the wheel's retaining nut with a wrench, mark the hub's relationship to the steering shaft with tape and remove the wheel with a steering wheel puller.
5.5
Remove the steering column covers by removing the two Phillips screws on the sides and separating the two halves of the covers.
6.6
Unplug the electrical connectors for the ignition switch.
7.7
Unscrew the retaining screws for the ignition switch with a screwdriver and pull the switch out of the lock cylinder's housing.
Installation
8.1
Insert the replacement ignition switch into the lock cylinder housing--the lock cylinder must still be in the Accessory position--and secure it with the retaining screws. Connect the electrical connectors to the switch.
9.2
Connect the steering column covers to the column and secure them with their Phillips screws.
10.3
Install the steering wheel to the column, then connect the air bag to the wheel with its electrical connector and Torx screws.

Re-connect the battery cable.

Thank you for using Fixya!
