In order for you to get the ignition out you are going to have to drill a small hole in the housing and press in the retaining pin manually. it will be hard for me to describe the exact drill point to you with words, but if you have the new ignition switch in your hand you will see where the pin is and you can estimate where on the housing to drill the hole. as soon as the hole is drilled - take a small metal punch and you will need to smack the pin up into the old switch,, this will allow you to remove the old ignition. now when you are putting the new ignition in, before you do you will need to use a flat blade screw driver and turn the inside gear to the accessory position so when you slide the ignition into place everything lines up right.

How do I remove the ignition lock on my 1998 Mazda Protege? Tumblers are stuck. Key won't go past accessory.


if ou do not have the key, look at the replacement lock there'll be a tab which recesses when the key is turned to acc or on position. It is that tab which prevents you from removing lock cylinder it has to be forced into a recessed position or drilled to where the cylinder can removed. If u do then locate tab turn key to acc or on and push tab to recessed position and remove cylinder.

How to remove ignition lock cylinder, broken key inside


If the key is broken off inside the cylinder and u still have the other half of the key u should be able to insert the remainder of the key to get the ignition to turn forward. You'll have to remove the covers surrounding the upper half of the steering column and you will see a small pin on the cylinder to push to remove the inner part with the broken key. the key has to be in the on position to remove the cylinder and just reverse the removal to put it back together.
