Changing ignition key switch


Recommended Posts

Those are the anti-theft screws. The normal heads are designed to break of when you tighten them down the first time. To remove them either drill the heads off, or use a Dremel tool (or similar) to cut a slot for a blade screwdriver into the head.

OK, you've got me on this one. On all of the Zs I've owned, the screws go straight out away from the driver's side of the steering column. I don't see how the dash could interfere. Can you post a picture of how your switch is oriented?

I just did mine. I would leave the regular screws in place and tight and remove the anti theft ones first. If you don't you will be "chasing" them all over the steering column.

I bought a little punch and pounded them until I got enough grip for a screw driver. Next time I would get a dremel. It's all about having the right tool.
