ignition cylinder

the other night someone tried to take my jeep and got something jammed into the ignition cylinder. so i called the dealership and they said it would cost around $300 so i figured i would try and fix it myself. i just order a new cylinder. and while i am waiting for it i was going to remove the old one but i can not figure it out. any suggestions?

Be sure to have them code the cylinder for your key before you pick it up.

However, you'll probaby have trouble if you can't get the key in and turned, as that's required to get it out.


REMOVAL
The ignition key must be in the key cylinder for cylinder removal. The key cylinder must be removed first before removing ignition switch.

If equipped with an automatic transmission, place shifter in PARK position.
Rotate key to ON position.
A release tang is located on bottom of key cylinder (KEY CYLINDER RELEASE TANG).
Position a small screwdriver or pin punch into tang access hole on bottom of steering column lower cover (KEY CYLINDER RELEASE HOLE).
Push the pin punch up while pulling key cylinder from steering column.

Believe me... I've had my share of run-ins with the thieves!

This summer they did this, even though the top was down and there were NO DOORS! And on top of that, I'm considering moving to the #1 auto theft state next year.

They did the same thing to mine a couple years ago. It cost me about $160 dollars for a locksmith to come out and replace the cylinder. If you can't get it out yourself and you already have the cylinder it might cost you less.
