Just a little nudge from my end!
Insure you remove the negative cable off of the battery before we begin!
Key to "on",
Depress the pin (maybe a shot of WD-40 in the hole) work it in and out a bit, hopefully gaining more push! A squirt around the bezel and the big hole (the whole cylinder will go into) might free stuff up.
Wiggle/ Jiggle the key and cylinder slightly while remaining in the "on" position and pulling outward.
Here's a good one:
When you do get it out and before you start into the Moon walking/ Cheer leading/ Self praising routine in front of your pals,
Lets check one important thing out,
Did the gear (that moves the assembly) stick to the end of the old lock cylinder? Or not?
It will have to go back on the new one exactly as it (might) be stuck on the old one. It may still be in place inside the column. Never hurts to look in there with a penlight to insure it is where it should be!
Did it fall off somewhere during the process?
(This happened to another feller, his gear bounced under the seat and was hid among the parts under there, he didn't realize it was missing-it was a bad few hours for several of us looking for it).
Another no-no is to "play" with the new switch before it is installed. Most are plainly marked not to turn them until they are 100% seated in place.
Okay, back to the bleachers I go!
