HOW DO I REMOVE THE IGNITION SWITCH

2000 Lexus ES 300 • 100,000 miles

I am locksmith that clones keys. I do not remove ignitions or create a fist key. I had this new clone and it got stuck in the ignition. I forced it out. Then the original started having problems getting in and out. No problems turning. I have a locksmith friend that will fix the ignition if only I can take it to his shop. What are the steps to taking this ignition out. I was told by another locksmith that it is not easy. Will I ve to move or remove the stearing column?

Removal & Installation (ES300)

Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove steering column. See STEERING COLUMN. Unplug switch connector. Remove retaining screws and ignition switch. To install, reverse removal procedure.
Tighten mounting screws until screw heads break off.
