Hi, I am trying to replace the ignition switch on my '83 FJ60 I have already removed the steering wheel and the wiper and turn signal stalk assemblys. If anyone knows how to remove the cylinder and could post me a pic. I would be so thankful, I have already removed all the screws and bolts on the assembly. but one corner is stuck and has some sort of rivet holding it in place.

Thanks in advance

Thanks, I had a conversation with the parts counter at my local dealer. He told me that toyota dosn't have records past '91 so he can't look it up but the salesmen should have recorded the keycode onto the original sales documents which I belive I have in a folder under the seat. Beyond that he explained to me that the rivet bolt type thing I can't get it off is a break away and he has watched the guys in the shop break it with a chisel!

PS: today i'm taking the digital so i'll post some progree pics if I can!

Well, After I didn't waste to much time trying to get the cylinder out of the housing. I just took a hacksaw to toyotas breakaway bolt and brought the entire assembly to my locksmith who was able to make me new keys that match the original!!
