How do you remove the Ignition Key Cylinder? It is stripped down to steering column stem but there are two roll pins to secure the cylinder. The pins only go in or out in one direction. How can they be removed to pull key cylinder out for replacement?
2. Remove steering column upper mount bolts. Lower steering column. Use cold chisel to make groove on heads of lock cylinder bolts. Remove and discard mount bolts. Remove lock cylinder and bracket. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten mounting bolts until heads break off.
