Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
Hi. Removing the key tumbler requires expertise. Anyway here's the procedure. remove your starter ignition switch,held on by one screw, remove top and bottom plastic couple screws,two screws on top to remove blinker switch's and lights.under tumbler casing two small screws hold shift cable remove that and in between starter switch and tumbler the rest off your ignition. remove this at the more than likely at the end the soft metal has broken so instead off it having a square end it's rounded so it can't turn your ignition you will have to replace that unit

It is not necessary to remove the steering wheel. It requires having a serviceable key and the lock cylinder has to be capable of being manipulated into the RUN position.
(1) Disconnect negative battery cable.
(2) Place key cylinder in RUN position. [This takes some manipulating due to the cylinder's condition.] Through the hole in the lower shroud, depress lock cylinder retaining tab and remove key cylinder. [You can use No. 2 square drive screwdriver.] INSTALLATION
(1) Install key in lock cylinder. Turn key to run position (retaining tab on lock cylinder can be depressed).
(2) The shaft at the end of the lock cylinder aligns with the end of the housing. To align the socket with the lock cylinder, ensure the socket is in the run position. [The socket is the place in the steering column that the cylinder fits into. If you didn't disturb the electrical part of the assembly, it is already aligned.]
(3) Align the lock cylinder with the grooves in the housing. Slide the lock cylinder into the housing until the tab sticks through the opening of the housing. [Actually, you will feel the -snap- as it engages.]
(4) Turn key to the OFF position. Remove the key. Connect the battery terminals . ---------- In some cases the steering shroud needs to be removed. Remove the sttering column shroud. put the key in and turn it to the run position. on the botton of the column where the cylinder goes in there is a button that has to be pushed. the cylinder will slide out. if the key will not turn, you will have to drill out the button. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
