I need to make a key and i cant get my key tumbler out

If you know any one capable of removing the Ignition switch you could then take the switch in to a dealership the dealer ship will probably sell you new ignition switch with keys.The other option is to take it to a locksmith and he may be able to remove the key and as long as you are the registered owner of the vehicle can make a key for it by using the vin # of the vehicle. Hope this helps

Remove the lock cylinder retaining screw.

pull out the lock cylinder (you may have to turn the lock cylinder to the run position for it to pull out).

I need to know how to replace my turn signal switch on my steering wheel my windshield washer turner broke off so either I need to know how to fix the windshield washer switch or just replace the whole...

The turn signal switch or in Ford terms "multi-function" switch is easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. Lower the steering column "tilt" adjustment for easier access. Remove the lower panel (below the steering column). Remove the three screws from the plastic column covers that surround the multi-function switch. Turn the key to the run position, then from the bottom side of the column, use a very small pocket screwdriver, allen wrench or similiar tool to push up on the ignition cylinder release pin. The hole is located just below the cylinder. With the pin pushed, pull out on the key and cylinder. Next seperate the two cover halves and you will see the complete multi-function switch. remove the two attaching screws, remove the electrical connectors and replace the switch. Replace all removed components and you're done! You can purchase the switch at most auto parts stores, ford dealers or ebay. Feel free to ask if more information is needed and I appreciate a vote of four thumbs up. Good luck!

Need to know how to remove and replace my f 150 ingention it is a 1987 and what tools i will need

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

Bad key switch, need to know how take steering column apart to replace switch

Remove the steering wheel,which may require a puller.
Mark the wheel in relation to the steering shaft before removing.

Remove the steering shaft locking ring.Held on with a C ring on steering shaft,which may require a tool made to push the lock ring down a little for removal of C ring.

Remove the signal light switch....held in with usually 3 screws and one on the hazard flasher switch.
Just pull it out enough to get access to the single bolt holding the lock/key cylinder into the steering column.

Slide old lock out......and slide new lock/key in.
Reverse the process.
