Is there a couple of clips holding it in or screws? Also once this is taken out does it disable the steering lock or does this have to be done some other way?


you need to take the steering shroud off, when you turn the ignition key, you will see a hole open up, you have to poke a thin rod in the hole to remove the lock from the barrel. Tis a rough description, but i changed my locks this way about 12 months ago

I've got a set on an EF Fairmont wreck, with 2 genuine keys, but had a look at the ignition barrel the other day and can't work out how to get it off! Its attached to the column and has 2 bolts going through, with round heads on. Does anyone know how to take them off?


they are shear-off bolts...u gotta drill them out...theyre designed for the heads to snap off at a certain torque,,this is for security purposes...

you dont have to drill out the shear bolts all you need is a chisel and a hammer.
use the chisel to undo the bolts

Or if you are patient you can get a hacksaw blade in there and slowly cut a slot in the heads to allow a flathead screwdriver in there. Worked on my XD. 8-)

thanks guys, I'll give it a go. And to put back in I assume you'd just use normal bolts?

well apparently they have an unusual thread...and i think the bolt heads wont allow the shroud to fit properly over the column....u can get the proper bolts from Ford for a few dollars each....
