Ignition switch pontiac


I am not sure of the correct tool name but it is a female torx with a male pin in the center. You have to remove the cover, and then you should see the screws on the left side, not the ignition cylinder side,. I had to change one from a pontiac grand prix and I had to go buy a set of the male/female torx to change it. After I changed it, I changed the screws to phillips so if the ignition switch needed changed again, I only needed a screw driver.

Change ingnition switch on 1978 pontiac firebird trans am


Use a steering wheel puller to remove the snap ring that holds the big spring. Remove the screws that hold the signal light mechanism, and the signal light handle has to be removed. Lift the signal thing up to expose a "torx" headed screw. Remove that screw and the tumbler should pull out fairly easily. That torx screw should have an unthreaded part at the bottom of it. Make sure that comes with it. Sometimes they break off.
