If there is not a screw to remove,then there is a slot,that you have to push in with a small punch,and pull out on the lock and cylinder.Let me know if you need more advice,I am glad to help.Look at the new one You will see the part that has to be pushed in,like I said,if it does not have one,the new lock and cylinder will have a place made on it,you will see,that is gouged out sort of,that is where the screw would go threw if it has one,if not,it will have the push in type release.

How do I remove the ignition lock cylinder on my 2000 ford Fleetwood tiago motor home

There is a nut or screw on the back of the lock cylinder, unscrew it, but have your key in the front of the cylinder first so it doesn't fall apart on you. Then turn the key one way or the other and it will come out, make the wafers are where you can see them as you pull the key out. Good Luck

Is the transmission for REAL locked in "Park"? You may need to pull apart the steering column to verify the interlock linkage between the shifter lever and the key cylinder.

Wipers won't move but motor still runs, bar moves but not wipers, how do I fix it?

It sounds like you need to replace the wiper transmission assembly which is common. For a while it only came in a complete assembly including the motor and everthing but I think now you can get the transmission assembly by itself.

Can not remove old key sw the blade part is stuck in

A quick simple solution would be to try to start the car by sticking a flat-head screw driver like a key. A more expensive solution would be to find another ignition assembly with key from a junk yard and replace the whole thing. An even more expensive option would be to buy the ignition assembly and keys from a parts store or from the nearest Ford dealership. Hopefully this helps to FixYa problem!

Key cut for 97 ford f150

If you already have a key bring it to walmart. If you dont, take apart your ignition assembly and get the part that the key goes into and bring it to a lock smith. They are usually very good at making keys.

How to change inginition?

if you have an original replacement key assembly, then all you have to do is remove the old key assembly, transfer the rear electrical ignition switch to the new key assembly and your done.

no need to transfer or solder any wire. if you have a replacement part which is not an original, then it would be very difficult to trace the wires unless you have a knowledge in voltage testing and using a volt meter.

tnx 4 using fixya,
