I have a "90" Cavalier with over 100,000 miles on it.
It is an automatic on the floor without tilt steering.
I need to replace the ignition switch and was wondering what I need to do to replace it? Like if I need to remove the steering wheel or not, etc?
Do you
have the same problem?

Thank you, but I need to replace the ignition switch itself, not the key cylinder.
