    Default Key tumbler removal from '84 Lincoln Town Car

    Hi there, I've removed the steering wheel, and can't figure out how to remove the actual tumbler itself. I've more or less read the manual from front to back, either I'm just stupid, because I can't seem to find anything on removing this piece. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you have to have the key turned back to Accesory before you can push the realease tab in to enable you to slide the tumbler out

    And where exactly do I find the release tab?

    it is either a screw or a push in tab that is located on the underside of the steering column, look in line with the tumbler it will be near the end of the tumbler's location about 2 inches in depth

    Gallifrey2 - look in Chapter 12, Section 11. The procedure is there. Illustration 11.3 shows how to depress the release tab.
