How do I replace tumblers in ignition key cylinder? solved
1994 Honda Civic EX
I have a new ignition key cylinder that's suppose to be exact fit for car, but it isn't.
Everything looks the same except for the end that goes into ignition switch.
The old one is solid on that end, and the new one is slotted.
The new one will not go all of the way into switch.
So I thought maybe putting new tumblers into old cylinder would solve my problem.
I removed the retaining ring from old cylinder, and with key in cylinder I tried pulling the cylinder out of it. The key/cylinder/tumblers won't come out when I pull on key. What's keeping it from coming out and how can I replace these old tumblers?
