How do I remove the ignition switch
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.?
