Q: Ignition Switch Removal 1967 / 1968
Somebody know how to get the switch and lock cylinder apart without to much trouble? I guess the small hole close to the key slot is involved in some way.
A: Can’t remember the exact way but I have done it.straighten out a paper clip and stick it in the hole,insert the key,turn it and pull.play around with this and you will get it out.with any luck somebody else on the list will have the exact way to do it,good luck.
A: He has it right. Insert the paper clip or simular stiff wire into the hole. This will align a series of keys or pins that will allow you to then seperate rotate and unscrew the bezel which holds the switch to the dash. You may have to jiggle this around a bit to get full enagement, but it does indeed work.
This applies only to 1967-1968 cars, as the 1969 has the switch in the steering column.
A: Turn it counterclockwise to “accessory”. Insert something in the hole (I use my torch tip cleaners). Turn farther counterclockwise and presto!
A: Hey you guys are forgetting the most important thing… turn the switch to the accessory position before you push the paper clip in and use the key to pull the cylinder out. Re insert the cylinder without the paper clip in the same accessory position using key to then turn to off position. Gary
