I'm having trouble with inserting a key into the ignition. The locksmith said the ignition needs to be replaced. How do I go about doing this and what tools are required?

Thanks,
Keith

TURN SIGNAL SWITCH
Removal & Installation
Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove steering wheel, retaining ring, and shaft lock cover. Using Lock Plate Compressors (J-23653-4 and J-23653), remove lock plate. Remove canceling cam assembly, upper bearing preload spring, and turn signal lever.
Push hazard switch in and unscrew knob. Remove actuator arm assembly and switch mounting screws, wrap a piece of tape around upper part of wires. Remove switch by pulling straight up. To install, reverse removal procedure.

LOCK CYLINDER
Removal
Remove turn signal switch as previously described. Turn lock cylinder to "ON" position. Remove key warning buzzer switch and lock cylinder attaching screw. Remove lock cylinder.

IGNITION SWITCH
Removal
Steering column must be lowered (removed on some models) to gain access to ignition switch. Steering wheel removal is not required. Place lock cylinder in "OFF" position.
If lock cylinder has already been removed, pull actuator rod up until it stops. Back off actuator rod 2 detents. Remove switch retaining screw and stud. Lift switch from column. Detach actuator rod.
Installation
Place lock cylinder in "OFF" position. Place switch in "OFF" position by moving selector to top of switch and then backing off 2 detents.
On fixed columns, fit actuator rod into slider hole. Install switch onto steering column. Tighten attaching stud and screw.
On tilt or telescoping columns, install switch. Lightly push switch down on column to take up free play in actuator rod. Tighten attaching stud and screw. Connect wiring harness. Check operation of ignition switch.
