How to Replace ingnitionTo replace the ingition switch it is real easy. First you must remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. Then you remove the plastic cover that protects the steering coloum. then remove the four way flashers switch with a Phillips screw. back inside the coloum remove the the other screw from the turn signal arm screw. after that you will see 3 more Phillips screws remove them and carfully remove the plastic turn signal gears. once that is done you will either see a torqes screw or a Phillips screw remove that and pull the ignition out and put the new once in and reverse the instruction to put it back together.
