Steering problem
1993 Buick Skylark Two Wheel Drive Automatic

How do I replace the ignition switch for a 1993 Buick Skylark? I can't get the cover off to get to it.

Do you
have the same problem?

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. If equipped, disable the SRS system.
3. Detach the left instrument panel insulator.
4. Remove the left instrument panel trim pad and the steering column trim collar.
5. Unfasten the steering column upper support bracket bolts, then remove the support bracket.
6. Lower the steering column and support it safely.
7. Disconnect the wiring from the ignition switch.
8. Unfasten the ignition switch-to-steering column screws. Remove the ignition switch from the steering column.

To install:

9. Before installing, place the slider in the proper position (switch viewed with the terminals pointing up), according to the steering column and accessories:

Tilt column with PARK/LOCK-1 detent from extreme right

10. Install the activating rod into the switch and install the switch to the column.

Do not use oversized screws as they could impair the collapsibility of the column.
