The ignition switch is on top of the steering column. You will have to remove the trim piece under the steering column and then loose the 2 bolts (1/2 inch) that holds the steering column. Watch your shift ind if it starts to move you will have to unhook ( silver or black clip with a small cable attached to it). Make sure you unhook the battery and block the wheels to keep the car from rolling. The switch uses the same bolts and the dimmer switch. Remove old switch and install new switch.
Once you have the arm removed (use a puller made for that) You need to remove the c clip retainer. Many times you can loosely install the arm, put it back on the ground and with a catch pan under it, just quickly turn the wheel and pressure will drive the seals out. If that does not work, you can use long self tapping screws and put one into each side of the seal and pull it free. Most i've seen always have two seals separated by a steel flat washer. To re-install, you need to carefully drive the seal back in using a piece of pipe or anything that fits and does not damage it. I have special tools I made long ago to do that but the trick is to be careful not to get the seal too far in on any one side and to not damage it in any way. Likely someone makes an install tool. Make note of the order of the seals as you remove them and make a reference mark on the arm and shaft so you can get back together the same way it was.
remove tire, then remove caliper mounting bolts,caliper might be a little snug to get out just pry it off with something without harming any components. remove old pads then use a c clamp and squeeze piston all the way back in put new pads on and reassemble the way you took caliper off do not remove brake line
The first thing you have to do is access the seal. That means removing the transmission, bellhousing, clutch or converter, and flywheel or flexplate. After that you have to determine if your seal is a one or two piece. If it's a one piece, the change is simple. Ply the old seal out. Be careful and take your time. You don't want to damage the sealing machined surface of the crankshaft. After the old seal is out, grease the sealing surface of the new seal. Install the seal evenly and slowly so as not to cause distortion. If you have a two piece seal, you'll have to remove everything previously listed along with dropping the oil pan. Next you'll have to remove the rear mail bearing cap. From the cap remove one half of the seal. Be careful not to drop the cap or damage the bearing. Install the new half in the cap being sure that it is fully seated. If done properly you'll have excess seal sticking out at both ends. Trim them off and set the cap off to the side. Next you'll need a tool called a sneaky pete. Follow the instructions and remove the old seal that is still in the engine block. Install in reverse and trim as with the cap seal. Next, dab a light coat of silicone sealer on the ends that you trimmed on the cap and reinstall the cap to the proper torque.
