If I remember you have to remove the steering wheel to get to the release for the key switch to come out.If you have a tilt wheel let someone with experience do it,you will be glad you did,and it wont be cheap.Sorry!

How do you take a ignition switch out of a 1977 chevy pickup with a non tilt steering column?


Pop the center out of the wheel, disconnect the horn. Remove the big nut. Use steering wheel puller to remove wheel.

DC horn wiring again, remove plastic cover. Depress lock plate and remove circlip. DO NOT LOOSE. remove lock plate. some have a small 3/16 allen screw holding key tumbler in others have a flat spring to depress.

If the actual switch (not lock cyl) is bad you will have to lower the colum from the dash Remove screws (4) holding te plastic piece under the colum2 bolts it will swing down and allow access to the ignition Sw, top side of the colum.

Lost key to 1998 Chevy S10 Need to remove&replace tumbler w/o key


With the title and an insurance card your dealer can cut a new key by the VIN if you have never replaced the lock cylinder before. If not it will be remove the column covers, drill out the lock and try not to damage the lock housing. Good Luck

Check your fuse panel first. If not no problem there. Then need to check your dimer switch. That will make your light stop working. If not that, it has to be the main light switch.

Turn the key to the ON position. Underneath the ignition there's a hole you can put a long pick through to depress the retainer. After pressing in, you pull the ignition straight out. Look at the new lock and you should be able to figure it out. The paper tube on the ignition can be slid off. It just holds the buzzer onto the outside of the cylinder. Nothing will fly anywhere. Hope this helps. Hi there from Oyster River Vancouver Island BC, well i just broke my key switch. Key moves around nice and smooth but will not ingage the main electrical switch block further down the steering colum. I know there is a small indent or hole on the underside of the key switch. Have to drill it our slowly with a small drill that just fits the indent. After that you should be able to use a small punch or nail to press the spring loaded pin and the key tumbler assembly should pop out. The new key tumbler switch that costs about 46.00 will come with a small tube covering the key tumblers, do not remove this. You will have spring tumblers falling out on your floor mat. Once the old key tumbler assembly is out you should line up the new one and slowly press into the hole , read carefully on how to get the tube off, not sure if its cut and torn of slowly as you press in. If your not sure perhaps takeing it to a mechanic would be worth while. I am stuborn and taught many things from my Dad who has been a mechanic for over 40 years. Hope this helps you and I will be doing this same task next weekend. Right now I have taken the main switch thats further down the steering colum off and used a screw driver to move it and start the truck. I know it's Duke's of Hazard way of doing things but get me going for now. And the key still locks the steering, so if someone steel's my truck they can only go in cirlces or straight ahead. Then with that noise I can convice them to leave my truck alone with help from my shotgun...
