This is not a hard job. I myself have an 87 ford and i just did this! dont rip apart your steering wheel! first remove the bolts where the shaft goes through the fire wall! there is like 8! Then pop the hood and there is one bolt on the steering shaft take that off. Next remove the aluminum plate in the shaft the steering wheel should fall, pull in completely off, but before that disconnect the wires that go into the harness(ignition switch). There is a rod that goes into the switch which turns the truck on and the radio and so forth! Take off the 2 bolts holding the switch in! Becareful not to break them. Then put the new switch in adjust it to neutral with the little wire they give you. Be really careful tightening the switch to the shaft. If you snap thosebolts you will have to get a whole new shaft! Then adjust the switch so when you turn the ignition everything works like normal then tighten the switch to the shaft and reverse the steps for reassemble!

you have to remove the steering wheel. (if it has an airbag, be very careful not to set it off.) if no airbag, just remove the steering wheel, and on the ignition switch there is a bolt that simply screws out. remove the ignition switch, and replace with the new one. line up the bolt holes, and replace bolt. put steering wheel back on, and youre done.

You need to remove the steering wheel first with a puller. There is a latch you can trip with a small screwdriver that will let the ignition switch slide out. Simply replace the switch and put the steering wheel back on.

I was under the impression the switch was on the steering column about 18 inches from the floor. The lock assy is under the steering wheel.

i had to replace the ignition switch on my 94 sunbird 2 weeks ago...mine has no airbag, and hopefully for this repair yours doesnt either. you have to remove the steering wheel. on the ignition switch there is a bolt that simply screws out. i dont think i had to remove anything else...maybe the turn signal switch, but nothing major. remove the ignition switch, and replace with the new one. line up the bolt holes, and replace bolt. put steering wheel back on, and youre done.

Remove the airbag and steering wheel, remove the torx screws from the steering housing and remove the housing, remove the screws from the signal and wiper switch, and remove the screws above the ignition switch and remove the switch. Replace the switch and replace everything in reverse.รŠ

The Steering Wheel lock is jammed! Gently wiggle the steering wheel back and forth as you try to turn the ignition key.

remove the steering wheel. unbolt the collar that holds the steering column underneath the dash. that plastic box halfway down the column with all of those wires hanging out of it is your ignition.

take the steering wheel off and take the ignition lead off and then you buy a new ignition with new key or vis versa

Maybe your steering wheel it's keeping the ignition cylinder to turn, so move the steering wheel and at the same time try to turn the key. Maybe you need to replace the ignition cylinder key lock

to replace the switch u will need the key to the old ignition switch. its as simple as getting a t15 bits to take off the steering colum and unscrewing the switch i think the bit size is t25 and you need a special bit with a hole in the center of it. you take off the steering wheel column covers.

Yes. Just take the U clamp off the bottom of the steering column and it will drop down so you don't need to take off the steering wheel.
