first you need a steering wheel puller .remove the center cap on the steering wheel then re move the nut i think its a 3/4 in nut after that there is a ring that has to be removed you will see it around the steering shaft you will need the tool that pushes the steel plate down any good parts person will know what you need i cant think of the name of it so after you get the plate off you'll see the turn signal switch there are 3 screws that hold it in place remove them and pull the switch out you can pull kinda hard on it to get out of the way once its out you will see a set screw were the tumbler goes in pull the set screw and the tumbler will slide right then just reverse the steps and your all done hope this helps

Need to know make and model in order to answer this. On some, you simply use a key to remove the panel which the switch is mounted to, unplug the wires from the back of the switch, use a small pick to remove the tumbler from the housing, pop a new housing into the tumbler, and put it back in the opposite of how you took it out.

How do you remove the ignition switch on a 1992 Toyota Pickup Truck?

First, remove the lower dashboard panel in order to get at the switch. There are four Philips screws and one bolt that secures this panel. Then remove the two nuts and three bolts securing the steering column to the dash frame. This makes it easy to get at the switch. Remove the cover around the ignition switch. The front part is the key and lock tumbler, and the bottom is the electrical switch part that is not disturbed by this process. Take care not to pull the wires in the wire harness to the switch. Remove the key sensor switch from the housing that holds the tumbler and switch mechanism. Remove the screw that holds the ignition switch body. Remove the electrical harness part from the back of the switch. Then, insert the key and turn slightly. Release the pin under the tumbler casing and pull out the cylinder.

What is the procedure for changing the ignition switch in a 2000 Chevy S10 truck?

Remove the dash trim around the gauge cluster and radio. It helps to put the shifter in 1st to get it out. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers. Disconnect the air bag(unhook the battery first). You'll have to remove the steering wheel to gain access to one of the bolts that holds the tumbler housing to the column. I think there are 3 in total, they are torx heads. Remove those bolts and the housing will come off. If I misunderstood the question and all you want to replace is the plastic switch that is turned by the tumbler when the key is turned. You can get to that by just removing the plastic around the column. Below the key you will see the big wiring harness.(disconnect the battery) This piece can be pulled out of the bottom of the tumbler housing with a screw driver. Once it's out you will see what the tumbler actually is turning when you turn the key.
