1994 Cavalier non tilt how to remove ignition switch

From what I read..you have to remove the steering wheel first..how does this happen..does the pad come off someway first?by pulling on it?

Re: 1994 Cavalier non tilt how to remove ignition switch

I assume you are talking about the key cylinder???? The true electric ignition switch is farther down the column.

IIRC they snap on.

Go to Autozone and rent a steering wheel puller. You will also need a tool to depress the plate so you can remove the C clip. after that it is a piece of cake as long as you have the key to turn the lock cylinder.

Removing Cavalier lock cylinder.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Re: 1994 Cavalier non tilt how to remove ignition switch

Just thought I would share my story on this..Problem When the car key was turned to start the car..it wouldn't start because it wouldn't stay in the run position.just fell back to the off.so I had to get it home with holding the key manually in the run place..to get to the ignition module first disconnect the battery..take the bottom cover plastic cover off..remove the horn button pad..disconnect the horn wire by twisting the connection.remove the steering wheel...remove the left plastic cover holding the turn signal and the right one holding wiper arm you will see 2 screws holding the plastic column covers to remove it..I failed to see them and broke the plastic tabs on the column cover..unplug the elect connections for the ignition module and then unbolt the module..Cost me $38 ..good thing the key cylinder wasn't bad it would have been 169 dollars..plus you have to drill out 2 holes to get at the screws..my car didn't have a airbag so if yours does you have to disconnect it first before starting..thanks for all the help..
