Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
Turn the key to the ON position. Underneath the ignition there's a hole
you can put a long pick through to depress the retainer. After pressing
in, you pull the ignition straight out. Look at the new lock and you
should be able to figure it out. The paper tube on the ignition can be
slid off. It just holds the buzzer onto the outside of the cylinder.
Nothing will fly anywhere. Hope this helps.
Hi there from Oyster River Vancouver Island BC, well i just broke
my key switch. Key moves around nice and smooth but will not ingage the
main electrical switch block further down the steering colum. I know
there is a small indent or hole on the underside of the key switch.
Have to drill it our slowly with a small drill that just fits the
indent. After that you should be able to use a small punch or nail to
press the spring loaded pin and the key tumbler assembly should pop
out. The new key tumbler switch that costs about 46.00 will come with a
small tube covering the key tumblers, do not remove this. You will have
spring tumblers falling out on your floor mat. Once the old key tumbler
assembly is out you should line up the new one and slowly press into
the hole , read carefully on how to get the tube off, not sure if its
cut and torn of slowly as you press in. If your not sure perhaps
takeing it to a mechanic would be worth while. I am stuborn and taught
many things from my Dad who has been a mechanic for over 40 years. Hope
this helps you and I will be doing this same task next weekend. Right
now I have taken the main switch thats further down the steering colum
off and used a screw driver to move it and start the truck. I know it's
Duke's of Hazard way of doing things but get me going for now. And the
key still locks the steering, so if someone steel's my truck they can
only go in cirlces or straight ahead. Then with that noise I can
convice them to leave my truck alone with help from my shotgun...
