Place key into ignition, use a paper clip and press the tiny hole on the switch. Turn the key back towards ACC position and pull the cylinder right out. Reverse procedure to install.

You need to remove the steering wheel and disassemble the steering column far enough to access the lock cylinder release tab from the inside. If you have already purchased a replacement cylinder, you can locate it quite easily.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford E250 Remove/replace front brake pads

You will have to take the wheel off, then try to use a latge screw driver to pry between the old pads and the rotor to push the old pads back some, this will allow you to remove the caliper easier later. Next get a T-45 socket and remove both the top and bottom bolts from the back of the caliper. Tilt the brake caliper at the top or the bottom (it different for both side), and slide it off. Then you can just remove the pads. Be careful to notice that the shims on the caliper slide are different from top to bottom, don't mix them up. Pull the caliper slide pins out and inspect the boot for hole or cracks and the pins for rust, replace if any of these condition exist. Use some brake silicone grease to lube the slide pins and put a little into each boot and put the slide pins back in. Check the rubber boots on the caliper pistions to make sure they are not leaking any fluid or ripped. Use one of the old brake pads and a C-clamp to push both pistons on one caliper back in until they are flush. Check to make sure that no fluid leaked out of the caliper pistons while they were being pushed back in. If you want to do what is call a pad slap only then you can install that pads at this time but that is not recommended. It is recommened that you measure, check and turn the rotors if at all possible or replace them, the wheel seals and check and repack the wheel bearings.

Hi,
When you say you were able to remove it - does this mean the broken part of the key? if it was, then just take both pieces to a locksmith that cuts auto keys, and have a replacement cut. If it uses a transponder, make sure this is copied also.

With a working key, remove any plastic surround around the lock mechanism (put the steering wheel back on), and look at the lock mechanism around the actual lock. Turn the key to position 1. This should allow a small pin on the side of the lock body to be pressed in - releasing the lock cylinder, which will come out on the key when you pull it.

These are some makes where you have to drill to depress the catch, but this is a hands-on job for an auto locksmith.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria key broke in ignition how to replace ignition


You will have to remove the steering wheel ( may need steering wheel puller after nut removed ) and the turn signal switch to gain access to a lock pin on the side of the key tumbler assembly , It will either be visible through a small hole or a very thin punch out in the face of the switch housing. push down on the pin and pull the switch straight out ( you need the key installed to allow this function , but as you said it is already there but broken off )

My anti theft alarm goes off and makes it to where I can't start my car how do i bypass this


You can't do it; the Theft System it's integrated to the vehicle control computer ECU/PCM; you need install one INTERFACE to make this work.

Review this Wiring Diagram and this comment: when installing a 791 TRANSPONDER BYPASS System on this vehicle it will be necessary to remove the BOTTOM STEERING COLUMN Cover and IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER to gan access to the Factory Transponder System around the Ignition Switch. To do so will require that you first look at the bottom of the STEERING COLUMN COVER to identify the screw holes from the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER RELEASE PIN HOLE, that is required to remove the Ignition Switch Tumbler, the IGNITION SWITCH RELEASE PIN HOLE is the SMALLEST Hole in the plastic cover in this picture. NOTE *** to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER, a TORX #15 Bit on a Screw Driver will work just fine. Incert it up into this hole and press, at the same time, turning the IGNITION SWITCH ON and the Tumbler will pull out at the same time. This Must be done to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER so that the BOTTOM Steering Column Cover can be removed to gain access to the TRANSPONDER SYSTEM built around the IGNITION SWITCH.

Also, its possible that you need other details from the Taurus's Owners Manual.

Hope helps.

Ford E-250 Handicap van will not turnover


Electrical problems are always the hardest to troubleshoot, that's why your shop could not find anything, they had not searched long enough, or looking in the wrong place. The shop may have checked the starter,solenoid,battery,relay( if equipped with), and then they gave up. It may be the ignition switch,or ignition safety switch( if equipped with ) there is almost always a way to bypass electrical equiptment to check if it is the problem. These test should be performed in the proper manner. You may need a new shop, to handle your electrical problems.
