E21 ignition switch....HELP!
 
Hi all, can someone tell me how to change/replace the ignition switch, have taken the retaing bolt out but the switch still won't come out.

Is the switch busted or is it not letting you start the car? Pulling out the tumbler where you put the key in is not easy to replace but the switch and wiring behind it is not that hard.

If you look where you insert the key you will find a small hole, about the size of a paper clip. Get a paper clip, straighten it out and put it into that hole. Insert your key, turn the key on and give it a bit of a wiggle back and forth and the cylinder should come out.
