2003 Hyundai Tiburon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
The key broke off in the ignition switch. A locksmith tried to get the broken key out (switch still in the dash) without success, but not too sure how competent this locksmith was.
1. How do I get the switch out of the dash?
2. Once out, can the broken key be removed by a locksmith?
3. If not, then I will purchase a new lock/switch assembly but can a locksmith fix it so I can use the original key? If not, then I guess I will end up with two keys, one for ignition and another for doors?
Any help you can offer will be appreciated.
This is a Tiburon GT - the ignition is on the dash.
I received you email yesterdsay and I am disappointed. You sent what appears to be a procedure for disassembling the steering column but nothing about removing the ignition switch. You just kept telling me to get a car repair manual( they cost about $100). First of all, the switch isn't in the steering column-it is in the dash next to the steering column. Also, I had asked specific questions that you did not answer.
