Question about 1989 Dodge Dakota 2WD
Behind the steering wheel there are two phillip screws you have to remove first. Then using a 13/16 socket, loosen the big nut in the center flush with the threads and give it a couple of easy whacks with a hammer being careful not to ruin the threads. That should loosen the steering wheel where you can pull it off. Then you have to remove a circlip which holds the turn signal assembly in place being careful not to distort the clip. Next with a phillip screw driver carefully take the three screws that hold in the turn signal assembly and then pull the assembly over the center stud. Now you you can get to the ignition cylinder. With a small screwdriver push in the clasp that holds the cylinder in place and while holding the clasp in you should be able to remove the ignition cylinder. To put a new cylinder in, make sure it is lined up in the cylnder housing and make sure the key is not in the ignition. Just tap the new cylinder with small hammer and it should pop right into place. Very simple. Then reverse the procedure to put everything back together.
