Igniton switch / lock removal

How do you remove the ignition switch? Is it pressed in?

It held together with bolts that have the head shear off (by design) when torqued. It's a theft prevention thing I guess. You may have to drill them out.

You can usually get a small chisel and tap it out by using the chisel on the outside edge of the bolt head and get it to turn..once it turns its easy to get out.. Once the assembly is out you can then remove the ignition barrel from the housing by placing it in position 2 and pressing in the locking pin and the barrel assy pulls out...

Drilled and used the ez outs and the bolts backed out , no problem. Thoughts on replacing with the bolts with the original heads that shear off or just use regular cap bolts?

Locks, any lock, only buy you time, time a thief often doesn't have.
You could use cap bolts but then I would fill the bolt head surround with JBWeld.
Put tape over the bottom to hold the weld in until it drys.
Or you could buy the sheer bolts from Trevor @ RovahFarm.

An experienced thief doesn't need to do anything with that.. A pair of channel locks and the whole head of the ignition lock assy comes off in 3 seconds flat..and then a flat blade screw driver turns everything and let's you start it..

Do you mean to say that the key cylinder is removable from the assembly on the NAS D90 ?
I thought it was held in by a drive pin in a blind hole.
