how to replace iginition switch


To replace the ignition switch remove the horn pad be careful the wire is still attached to the turn signal switch the plastic piece push down and turn it comes out then remove snap ring on the end off the steering wheel then nut place a dot of finger nail polish on the shaft and wheel for alignment purposes use a steering wheel puller once off then install a lock plate puller compress down and remove lock ring once removed (lock plate) this is spline d to go on one way then take the cancel cam off (slides off) remove turn signal lever screw and turn signal screws lift up to gain access to the ignition switch retaining bolt a small piece of plastic is covering the screw that is the key buzzer switch it just pulls out be careful not to drop the spring steel retainer down the column it does not come out that easy and does not install that easy either. Place ignition in the on position remove and put the new one in the same way this allows the key buzzer to go in with out interference from the plastic shoe that's part of the switch. the lock plate tool can be rented from the parts store.

Have a 1988 Acura Legend with a bad ignition switch...problem is how to get it apart to fix it. Can't get the bottom column cover off...any suggestions?


i think you meant Ignition switch.
really a 1988> no 1998?
the latter has air bags, and BOOM are very very dangerous.
yes, you are fiddling plastic covers. use a flash light.
covers, are you talking the steering column combo surround covers?
remove the screws , under under, do down, and look up, bingo?
i hope its a real 88,
i login to alldata.com
i look at lock removal.
7 steps, you are stuck at step 2
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column lower cover. Disconnect the ignition switch wire connector from the dash fuse box.
  3. Insert the key and place on the 0 position.
  4. Remove the 2 screws and replace the base of the switch.

  1. To remove the lock, remove the steering wheel and the steering column covers.
  2. Center punch each of the shear bolts and drill their heads off with a 3/16 in. drill bit. Be careful not to damage the switch body when removing the shear head.
  3. Remove the shear bolts from the switch body.
end remove.
ask questions.

How to replace the ignition switch on a 95 S-10 Blazer


From WikiAnswers for a 1997 model - -

You will need the following tools:
Steering wheel puller
Torx bits (get a set, you need 3 sizes)
Inverted Torx ( a set is available at Schucks/Kragen/Checker Screwdriver
A few zip ties
Wire cutters
DISCONNECT THE BATTERY
Start by disconnecting the yellow wire under the dash for the airbag. Now turn the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the underside of the steering wheel. You will have to insert a smaller size flat blade screw driver into the 4 holes on the back of the steering wheel and rotate them to release the airbag. Now remove the nut holding the steering wheel on and remove the steering wheel. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE AIRBAG MODULE!! Now remove the lower column cover with 2 Torx screws. You will now have access to 2 inverted Torx screws that hold the top column cover in place. Remove the hold-down ring that holds the cover to the shaft. Look on the top of the ignition cylinder housing and find the small hole. Insert a small Allen wrench into the hole and turn the key to "run" position and the ignition cylinder will come out, now the top cover will come off, giving access to the ignition switch. You will need the smallest inverted Torx bit for the 2 screws that hold the ignition switch in. You will have to cut a couple of zip ties to free the wiring. Now get a Torx bit and a 7mm socket and remove the lower dash panels to get access to the wiring harness. You will need the 7mm to unscrew a bolt that holds the connector together under the dash. Just follow the wiring to see what I mean. Once the connector is loose, you will see two plastic strips that run along side the connector. These are easy to remove and slide off, and are keyed so you cannot reinstall them wrong. Hope this helps.
Great answer/directions listed above. I would add that one can use a 3/16" section of brake line to get the two e3 or e4 external torx screws out (holds the ignition switch on) instead of buying the whole kit. Buy a 6" or 8" section of brake line, cut in half, take the cut end and "lightly tap" it on (with a small hammer) the torx head. The metal brake line is soft enough to form around the head. Take a pliers and spin off........they are not that tight nor hard to get off. Otherwise you need to buy the whole smaller external torx kit (2") and most places don't carry them.. as above I just did the job also and in fact used his answer.
Good luck

I have a 2008 impala and need to change the cabin air filter. However, I don't know how to remove the clips to remove the plastic under the wipers.


1. Put windsheild wipers in up position.
2. Remove the weather stripping from the passenger side cowl.
3.Unclip the wiper fliud hose.
4.Unscrew and remove fitting on sides of cowl.
5.Remove center screw cap
6.Take out the cowl cover. You may need to use a flat head screw driver to help it along.

I was getting frustrated trying to get the air bag off the wheel to do a column change out to a tilt wheel. The above worked perfectly for removing the airbag. However, the inverted torx bits can be removed with a good 6 point socket on a 1/4 inch drive ratchet as well. No need to buy a special tool.

Good luck
