Question about 1992 BMW 5 Series
The key only turns enough to unloock the steering wheel but will not turn further to stwrt the car.I need to remove the ignition lock to have it repaired.I have undone the nut that holds the steering wheel on but the wheel won't comme off. It seems to hook at the bottom. As well as this I can'see any pin or screw which I can use to release the actual lock.
Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry I have not done a BMW but steering wheels usually require a puller to remove from the spline.
I have mostly worked on *** cars and the steering lock and key are removed without the steering wheel removed. The lock assembly attaches around the steering column, and is held on by some tamperproof bolts which break the hex off on installation, so you are left with round heads that look like rivets, I use a small chisel or punch to get them turning, it may be possible to drill the heads off as well, Sorry again if my info only relates to japanese cars, but hopfully I helped with the steering wheel removal.
