Where is the hole on the lock cylinder that allows the key to turn when pushing on it?

have you tried to turn the steering wheel and then turn the key? when the steering wheel is locked it will not let the key turn, try turning the steering wheel to the right and then turning the key. Sometimes when getting out of the car your leg turns the steering wheel and locks it.

How do u remove the ignition lock cylinder on a 2005 Hyundai accent if u can't turn to acc? It won't turn at all, I've jiggled the key, and turned the steering wheel, which is also locked..

There should be security bolts holding the lock cylinder to the column. Security bolts heads twist off at the factory leaving a smooth top that you have to back out with a sharp center punch and hammer.

How do i remove hyundai accent 1.3 1999 model ignition barrel

do you have the ign key ? if not then it is going to be a lot harder . remove the upper and lower steering cowling , you will then have access to the ign switch , if you have the key insert and turn, if stiff spray some lubricating oil ie WD 40 down barrel to ease turning, until the steering lock comes off, at the back of the steering switch there will be a pop up metal nub , depress this and the barrell should slide out , if you do not have the key you may have to change the whole switch unit , keep me posted if you wish

I have a 1995 hyundai accent the key is broke in the ignition lock. ho can i remove the lock.

Sorry to say but you have to remove the center housing of the steering wheel and use a wheel puller to remove the steering wheel itself. You may find a tempered steel C-Ring holding a tephalon spacer. If you go that far with it I am sure it will come in to place.Hope this helps.

How do i unlock my manual Hyundai accent 2000 steering wheel ignition lock

Unless the vehicle has just a tremendous amount of sloppiness in the steering wheel or the ignition switch. It may just be in a bind and need a little more pressure than normal to allow you to unlock it. It may even take the help of a friend if it's in a bind or the steering is locked with the wheels turned severely one direction or the other. Have a friend grab the steering wheel and pull it down hard to the left or right while you try to turn the key. I mean a hard steady pull, not a quick ****. If it still doesn't release you most likely have an internal problem with the locking mechanism or the ignition switch itself.

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.
