    You dont need a diagram, you need a special set of locksmith tools. You will probably find it is cheaper to hire a locksmith or a Subaru mechannic to make this change.

Alldata does not list a procedure for this vehicle but they list the labor time as 45 minutes to do the job. From this I would assume you'll have to remove all the usual cowling bits surrounding the column where the tumbler is mounted. From there you may run into some tamper proof hardware that may include sheared screws or tamper proof torx head bolts. Some cylinders require that the key be in the ignition so that you can turn it to a certain position and/or push a release pin in order to slide the cylinder out. I know this is not a solution but hopefully it helps

Hi there I want to know if the cv axle of 1994 subaru svx is the same with the cv axle of impreza, legacy or forester? Thanks

You have to know the year and specific model of your SVX. Any Subaru parts department will look up the part number and also tell you if it is the same part as other models. They may work with you over the phone.

Ignition switch diagram

IF you have a locksmith take it out it is possible that he may be able to repair the pins in the tumbler but I think the cost would be more than getting a new tumbler. If you use a locksmith then he can set the new tumbler pins so that you can use the old key and that will save you carrying extra keys unnecessarily.

You have a broken wire going to the ignition tumbler inside the steering column. To fix it correctly, the tumbler will need to be replaced. Probably something for the dealer, or a locksmith as the new tumbler will have to have the same resistance chip in the key as the original.

Have a 93 jeep cherokee. Ignition is locked in the on position, will not crank over, but there is power.

If the key will not turn past the on position, and it turns to all other positions then you need to replace your ignition switch, if it doesn't turn anywhere but the on position then you need to replace your tumbler. For the ignition switch you will need a mechanic, for the tumbler you will need a locksmith.
