How do you remove the ignition switch from a 1986 Cadillac ElDorado?

Remove the bezel from around the radio, this will expose two hidden screws. Remove these screws and about eight other screws to remove the lower dash panel below the steering wheel. Remove the two large bolts and drop down the steering column. The ignition switch is a white module on the top left of the steering column. Remove the connectors along the right and the two screws along the left. Lift up the switch to disengage the mechanical link to the key tumbler to remove. Good luck finding a new module, I couldn't locate one for mine, so I just reconditioned my old one using some contact cleaner. If you're talking about the ingition cylinder, remove the steering wheel and turn signal switch. Remove the buzzer switch (white plug with a couple wires) located at about 4 o'clock by pulling straight out with a pair of needle nose pliers. This will expose the cylinder retaining screw. Remove the screw, and with the ignition switch in the locked position, pull the cylinder straight out...

It's a NIGHTMARE and simply requires patience. I have replaced several of these "Ignition Rack Actuator". It takes about three hours and a couple "SPECIAL" tools that I made myself. Biggest proablem I've had is purchasing just the actuator without buying the entire kit from buick. The kit costs over $50 and I've been able to get just the actuato9r for around $16 + ship.

Remove the dress plate under the steering column. There is a clip there for the shift indicator, if you shift on the column. There are two nuts on studs, one on each side of the column, remove these nuts, and the steering column will drop down. The switch is on top of the column just lower then the fastening bracket. Unplug the wiring, remove the screws that retain the switch, install new one and adjust. Put everything back together.

You need to remove the dash panel underneath the steering column. You will find the switch attached to the left side of the column with two 5/16" or 8mm screws. If you are sure it is the switch, you can go ahead and buy one so you know what it looks like, and know what to look for under the dash.
