steering lock


Recommended Posts

Remove the steering column shroud, and then remove the screws holding the lock assembly to the steering column.

If the lock has been removed previously, then more than likely they used regular screws and you'll be able to remove them with a plain old screwdriver.

If the lock has never been removed, then you will have to drill out or notch the breakaway screws so that you can unscrew them. If you use an EZ out or another broken bolt type remover, the screws should screw right out.

Once you're released the locking mechanism, just simply slide the lock tumbler out of the steering column and you'll be able to turn the steering wheel freely. At this point you could also remove the ignition switch from behind the lock and actuate it with a screwdriver and start the car.
