Let's hope with a Supercab you have a tilt steering wheel.If so, just unhook the negative battery cable, line your wheels up straight, leave it in park, and turn the key on. On the underside of the housing the key and lock cylinder is in, above the hazard switch, is a very small hole with a locking pin inside. Using a small punch, or whatever works for you, simply push the pin in as you pull the lock cylinder out, sort of twisting and rotating the cylinder as you pull. A non-tilting column is a little harder, but it's not difficult, just take your time and think about what you're doing. First you need to remove the steering wheel, so make sure you mark the wheel and column in a couple places so it's easy to line up later. On the back side of the wheel are two screws that hold the front padding with the horn in it. Remove it, being careful of the wires, and disconnect. With cruise control, when you disconnect the wiring in there, you need to squeeze the ground wire terminal clip carefully but firmly (it's sort of like a "J" clip), and pull the wire out of the hole in the wheel. DON'T just pull it out, squeeze, it's spring loaded. Then remove the switch for the horn and the nut holding the wheel on. Use a puller on the steering wheel, but not one they call a "knock off", because it's pretty easy to screw things up if you go hammerin' on the wheel or the column shaft. Take your time. Then you'll find the little hole with the retaining pin near the base of the lock cylinder inside the column, remove it the same way. Remember, in park with key on. Hope this helps you out. If you happen to be referring to the actual "ignition switch", located inside the steering column (which most people don't even know actually exists), or you don't have the key and that's why you're doing this, you'll have to let me know, and I'll try to walk you through those procedures at a later date.

remove the steering wheel . you might need a puller to pull it loose after you loosen the nut .. after you get it off look down in there and there is a small bolt that holds the switch in the column use a small light and you will see how it is held in there. some have a clip to pull too.. then out comes the switch .. thanks and holler if you need more. jerry

HOW DO I REMOVE THE IGNITION SWITCH ON MY 1976 DODGE PICKUP?


You will have to remove all the cowlings from the steering column to access the ignition lock and switch. With the correct key inserted and selected to, probably, the ACC position, you should be able to push on either a pin or a tongue that protrudes from the switch into the housing and the pull the whole lock/switch mechanism out.
