    I am concern with key tumbler hold housing, steering wheel lock sectionof housing, if it can be removed from housing, and also how to remove housing from vehicle.

  • outsidedabox May 21, 2014

    Hi Adrian, what is the model of you car.. is it a C-Class W202 or E-Class W210 model. If you can supply the Vin or chassis number.. starts with WDB.. and 14 digits after that. The steering lock is held in with pin, depending on model.. to remove key tumbler you need a special tool (which can be easily made in a w/shop) but still need the key to turn tumbler to position 2 to insert tools to remove the tumbler. Than remove the cover shroud that is over the tumbler. Than the steering lock can be removed, if you cannot remove the tumbler, the steering lock will have to be cut out in place.

Removal
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable . For tilt columns, tilt to the full up position. Remove the steering wheel , steering column locking lever (3B661) , and steering column trim shrouds as described in this section. NOTE: When drilling out the retaining pin, take care not to damage the cast housing.
  1. Punch the lock cylinder retaining pin with a ***** punch (1/8 inch maximum outside diameter). Using a 3.17mm (1/8-inch) diameter drill, drill out the retaining pin going no deeper than 12.7mm (1/2 inch).
  1. Place a chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap. Using a hammer, strike the chisel with sharp blows to break the cap away from the lock cylinder.
  1. Using a 9.8mm (3/8-inch) diameter drill, drill down the middle of the ignition lock key slot approximately 45mm (1-3/4 inch) until the ignition lock key slot breaks loose from the steering column cover casting. Remove the ignition lock key slot and the drill shavings from the base of the cover cast housing.
  1. Remove the lock cylinder drive gear, bearing retainer and actuator from the casting as described in this section. Thoroughly clean the components in an acceptable cleaning solution. Carefully inspect all components for any damage resulting from the drill operation. If any of the components show signs of damage, they must be replaced. Clean the casting with compressed air to remove any drill shavings or foreign particles and carefully inspect it for damage. If the casting is damaged, replace it with a new one.
Installation
  1. Lubricate the lock cylinder with grease.
  1. Reinstall the lock cylinder drive gear, bearing retainer and actuator. Lubricate with grease before installing.
  1. Turn the lock cylinder to the ON position and depress the lock cylinder housing retaining pin.
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the lock cylinder housing making sure that the tab at the end of the cylinder aligns with the slot in the steering gear (3504) .
  1. Turn the key to the OFF position. This action will permit the retaining pin to extend into the lock cylinder housing hole.
  1. Using the ignition key, rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to make sure to correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  1. Connect ignition key warning switch terminal and wire .
  1. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds as described in this section.
  1. Install the steering wheel as described in this section. NOTE: When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles or more to relearn the strategy.
  1. Connect the battery ground cable .
  1. Check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL. Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions

My key will start the car but it wont turn the car off i have to unplulg the distributor to kill theh car. Also the ignition switch in the car rotates all the way around but it has always done that it just...


the ignition switch is an electrical part. The lock cylinder is whre the key goes and it activates the ignition switch. If you pulled the lock cylinder out, you could operate the car with a screwdriver.
Either you have damaged the ignition switch where the lock cylinder goes into it, or the lock cylinder is damaged where it fits into the ignition switch.

Section 11-05: Steering Column Switches 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Ignition Switch The ignition switch (11572), which is mounted on the steering actuator housing (3F723), operates in the following manner:
  • The ignition switch is cycled through rotation of the ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) through a pin which is part of the ignition switch.
  • The ignition switch lock cylinder also controls the mechanism which provides a positive lock for the transaxle linkage and the steering system.
  • The locking mechanism is located in the steering column housing.
The ignition switch lock cylinder positions are:
  • ACC
  • LOCK
  • OFF
  • RUN
  • START
The key can be removed from the ignition switch lock cylinder with the column-shift transaxle only when the shift lever is in PARK position and the key is in LOCK position.
  • The ACC position operates while the steering and transaxle remain locked.
  • The engine shuts off when the key is turned to the OFF position without locking the steering or transaxle.
Blade Type
The ignition switch has blade-type terminals that engage with one multiple connector. The multiple connector is secured to the ignition switch by an integral connector fastener.
