If the bolts are the allen/hex/torx kind with a dot in the middle, just put a small flat head in there and remove that dot, or go buy some security bits.

If it's any other kind of bolt, use a file and cut a flat groove into the bolt, then either use a chisel and light taps with a hammer, or use a flat head screwdriver to unscrew it.

Replace ignition barrel renaulti


the barrel is the bit that the key fits in
it is held in the switch body by a clip or spring
talk with a locksmith as to how the barrel comes out
your problem here is that when replacing the barrel , the key in use will not activate the immobilizer
better to have the locksmith change the barrel so that the existing key can be used eliminating the immobilizer problem

The old key may have an induction chip in to deactivate the anti theft system. Does it have a red insert (chip) in the key handle? Get the old key and place it as close to the ignition barrel as possible. Seen this done on a number of occasions to save paying for a key reprogram.

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working


sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

The ignition switch seized up. how do you remove the tumbler


you will have to split the ignition barrel, using either a hammer and small thin chisel or an old screw driver, if you split both side opposite the barrel will fall out, it will in some cases leave the barrel stalk in the black box (the electrical black plastic box at the other side of the barrel housing) to remove this turn with a screwdriver to either position 1 or position 2, at the front of the barrel housing is a release pin hole which will need a small allen key or pot rivet pushing into it to release the barrel stalk, remove with pliars or with flat blade screw drive, place key in new barrell hold thumb over secure pin holding it into the new barrel, then gently turn key 90 degrees, and offer into barrel housing, ensure the secure pin is at all time still into the barrel, slide the barrel into houseing slowly until you mate up the barrel stalk to the black box, and slide in until you hear the secure pin click into place, turn key back to zere and remove slowly, the new barrel is fitted. should take about an hour from start to finish, if it was not seized no more than 15 min to complete. hope this helps.

Broken key in ignition


you can only push this detent pin in when ignition is in on position try to put key that snapped in and wriggle it around to try and turn ignition to on position so then you can remove barrel
if cant turn need to change whole assembly by un doing shear pin for clamp that holds whole assembly on steering column or do what some lock smiths do drill out old barrel slowly and going up in drill sizes until barrel comes out from housing without damaging housing
