    Default Key Cylinder removal


    I have a 97 geo metro. The manual makes no reference to key cylinder removal. My key has broken off inside the cylinder, How do I remove the Key cylinder? Thanks jrmfg

    jrmfg - Haynes manual #24075 has the repair in it on page 12-4 Section 10. You have to replace the key tumbler and housing as a unit. Purchase a new assembly. Replace the housing, which is held in place by two bolts that the heads are snaped off when it is installed. Cut a grove in each bolt head and use a flat blade screwdriver to unscrew them. Then mount the new assembly.
