Remove the cover around the steering wheel cloumn.At the bottom of the ignition (where you put your key in) there is a black plug in.Unplug that and pull out the switch.There is your ignition switch.Just replace in the reverse.Thats it.

You would have to disconnect the wires from the stock ignition, so you would have to tear it out unless you could find a way to do it without it.

Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your 1996 Chevrolet Silverado ignition lock cylinder. Slide the ignition lock out and remove the wiring harness. Reverse the process to install your new ignition lock cylinder.

The ignition coil is inside the ignition distributor.

take off the covers at the bottom of the dash. on the left side of the steering wheel you will see a circular pink and black thing with loads of wires. this will pull out with a small bit of force. the ignition switch is what this was plugged into. you will see 2 small screws with red plastic on the faces of them. undo these two screws then pull out the switch just like you did with the other thing. put in the new switch replace the two scres plug the wires back in and reattatch the dash.!!

I dont know if you need to or not but, I do know there was a recall on the ignition for 96 Grand AM. I would call a local dealer and ask if this pertained to your car also.

If the key is broken off in the ignition of the 96 Crown Victoria it will have to be picked out. If the key is out and broken, a locksmith can use the broken pieces to make a new key or rekey the ignition.

I had the same problem with my '96 Passat when i got it. All i had to do was to put my key in the driver side door and wait until all the doors were unlocked. That unlocked my fuel door as well. you.

i also own a 96 passat GLX VR6 and it is alot of work to change the alternator in a vr6 you pretty much have to take the front of the car off you need to remove the headlights to get to the raidator then you have to remove the radator to get to the alternator from there its a pretty simple process you need to remove the belt from the alternator then remove the bolts that hold it on and put the new one on and use a screwdriver to replace the belt onto your new alternator then you have to put the whole front of the car back on hope that helps
