  • Ignition Lock

    I have looked in the shop manual and the motors. Their description isn't very good. I have a 73 GTO with a tilt wheel. Need to change the ignition lock. Any good advice?

    They're all pretty similar. I just did one on a 79 GP not to long ago. I'll post a link to a site that shows how with a few more pics than chiltons or motors usually posts. Don't bother clicking any of the blue links in the middle of the screen, they're just trying to sell you a lock. Just pay attention as the pieces come out. Its also a good time to check the lock screws on your tilt as they have a tendency to loosen with age.

      There are quite a few youtube videos on the subject as well. Some are pretty painful to watch. LOL But if all your doing is changing the lock, it shouldn't be a big deal.

      You'll need a steering wheel remover and a lock plate compressor. Both cheap to buy and probably available to borrow from autozone or advance.

        Take it out and use a flat blade screw driver


        I think they are all the same like Pops said. You can get a set that includes doors do you only have 2 keys. Doors and ign then trunk

                Perfect, the wheel was already off, the pictures of where to release the lock were all bad. The one on yours were perfect. Thanks
