The ignition switch ( eletrical) is at the bottom of the sterring column and has wires connected to it usally held in with 8mm screws and had a rod it connects to . If you mean the ignition tumbler (keyside) you have to remove the steering wheel. You'll need some special tools to remove the lock ring . there will be a bolt that locks the cylinder to the houseing once removed the cyl slides out ....Good luck

Cant get key switch out of housing, on a 1974 chevy pick up.Trere are no screws or clips visible.


If you mean remove the ignition tumbler from the steering column, you will have to remove the steering wheel and lock plate, then you will need to remove the turn signal lever and screws, and then pull the turn signal switch up and out of the way, you should then be able to see the housing for the ignition tumbler down in the steering column. Look at the tumbler housing and there should be a small slot towards the end of the housing that you can put a small standard screwdriver into and depress a locking latch that is built into the tumbler. When this latch is depressed you will be able to pull the ignition tumbler straight out of the column.

How to change a ignition in a 1986 chevy truck


If the ignition switch is in the column then you need special tools to remove the steering wheel and various other components to get at it. Find a shop that can do this for you.

Ignition switch


is the vehicle out of gear and in the park position? if so try and turn the steering wheel left and right at the same time turn the key back and forth slowly. repeat this proccess several times. also move your shifter back and forth several times slowly. if this doesn't solve the problem, there is a pin inside the steer wheel coloumn that is the problem. you will have to remove the steering wheel column covers to solve this. good luck ....please rate this.......thanks
