Best Answer

The ignition module is not on the steering column. The module should be located on the distributor, on the outside, right below the cap. There should be a plug with a bunch of wires going to it. You will need a special tool to remove the small scews that hold it on.

How do you replace the Key-lock cylinder in a 1993 Geo Metro LSI The assembly is riveted to steering columm?

I had a problem where the end of my key 'fell off' inside the ignition. I'm not sure how this happened, but it did and the ignition was rendered useless. As far as I know, you cannot actually change the cylinder inside the ignition. I settled for removing the entire unit. The rivets you mentioned are not actually rivets, but bolts without the hex head, presumably that way for theft prevention. If you're desperate you can take a dremel tool with a cutting wheel and either make a slice on one of the bolt heads so that you can use a screwdriver to remove it, or cut the strap holding it to the steering column - it's probably an easy replacement.
