Re: ea ignition lock

Paperclip in the tiny hole on side of assembly while the key is in position 1 as I recall but I can't find it in the workshop manual.

Re: ea ignition lock

thanks, i got it out but now found the way the tibbe lock barrel fits into the housing is different to the standard locks. So now i have to get a tibbe lock cars housing/steering lock/switch housing thing (dont know its name) hopefully u get what i mean. Has anybody removed these, it says to punch out the shear bolts, is that right? any help appreciated!

Re: ea ignition lock

yep i done it

well basiclly you grind off the part on top that is sticking out (the button pushed to remove it) slide the lock into position and to hold it in place make a dot on it through the hole for the original lock and stick one of those serews that can only be turned one way (like on house door deadlocks) it takes about half an hour to do this i done this about a month ago i just need the driver side lock and ill have it all installed

Re: ea ignition lock

If its what I think your talking about, I took out the housing on my XF, drilled the top of the bolt of, then bolted the other one back on.
