You need to remove the small c clip that is at the center of that plate. They sell a small tool that depresses the plate, or you can make one. I have one I've made about twenty years ago and it still works. Use a 1/8" piece of flat steel about 3/4" wide and drill a hole in the center that the column shaft can just pass through. Drill a hole on both sides of the center hole and thread them to accept a quarter inch bolt. You place it over the column with two 1/4"x2" bolts extending towards the plate and put the column nut over it. Then, tighten the nut and it will depress the plate so you can remove the clip.
If you don't have a thread tap, you can put a nut on both sides of the plate on each bolt.

There's a special tool that is available at most part stores or tool rental stores. It's used to press down on the plate allowing it to be released.

How to change the ignition lock cylinder on a 1985 s15 gmc jimmy


1st you will need two tools, you can get them from any auto parts store like NAPA. See picture at end of the GM steering lock ring depresser, a must have..
INSTRUCTIONS:
Remove steering wheel. Underneath is the turn signal switch. There is a ring around the steering shaft holding the steering wheel lock plate down. Push down on the lock plate and remove the ring and the lock plate. Next is the turn signal switch. 3 screws holding it down one on the right side above the key and 2 on the left. Probably have to move the turn signal switch left and right to get them. the arm is held on with one screw. Remove the hazard button, one screw in the end of it. There should be enough slack in the turn signal wires to get it over the steering shaft. On the top side at the bottom of the ignition switch there should be a screw. Remove screw and the ignition switch will just pull out. Reverse to install.

92 buick lesabre, left blinker won't work unless you move it manually. bulbs and fuse are fine. hazards work.


Hi Friend:

Since you've check or Changed your Bulbs and Fuse also Check or Replace your Turn Signal Flasher,Just as a Percation i would Double Check Fuses,Bulbs and Signal flasher.

If these are All showing bad I would say your Signal Switch has Stopped Working.

To Replace the Signal Swith :

1st Disconnect your Negative Battery Cable.

Remove Steering Wheel (you'll need a Puller, the remove the Shroud around the Steering Wheel Colume.

CAUTION= If you have Air Bags be careful. But you will have to remove the Air Bag Module by removing the coil lock spring Screw.

Then remove the Retaing ring and Coil Spring it will still be attached to your wiring=Just let it Hang.

Next you'll need a Compression Lock Spring Plate Tool.

Attach it to the Center of the Steering Colume, Rotate the Nut Clockwise to Remove,After Compressed you'll see a Metal Snap ring Remove it from the Groove then remove the Tool& Plate

Now you'll need to remove the Plastic Cancel ,the ring and ALL the Bearing including the Bearing Race.

Remove the Signal Arm Lever Screw. then the Signal switch Screws. Pull the Switch out and let it Hang(Still attached to the Wiring.

Get down under then you'll have to look for the screws that hold the wiring to steering colume, Remove then.

Then remove the Retaining Rng and the Wire Plug Protector.Now you Can Pull the Signal Swith Out.

Installing New Swith Simply Reverse the Removal Directions to Install your New Switch.

Please take time to Vote on my Quality of Service and the Help i Provided And a Small Testamony would be Great.If you don't mind.

Thanks for Using FIXYA

Changing turn signal switch 1986 lincoln town car.


Get a manual like chiltons or haynes to guide you through this one...Air bag needs to be disabled and yes, wheel needs to be removed.You will need a wheel puller and a tool to remove the steering lock plate. The arm either unscrews from or is screwed to the switch...either way, it's removable.
