Having problems with your 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab ?

93 Ford Ranger Ignition Cylinder

\015 I need to replace the ignition cylinder in my above stated truck. Before anyone goes talking about sticking paperclips in holes in the underbelly of the column, there are none, nor on the sides of the cylinder for that matter. At this point I have removed the column shrouds (upper and lower) and have observed no access to the locking pin. Please help!!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 26-06-2017

Most but not all new ignition cylinders come with detailed instructions and pictures to aid in this. I think you are correct, there are no holes on a model that new, but there should be a release at a certain key turn point with the key in the ignition. Goto any major parts store and ask to see the instructions that come with it first, most will allow this (they want to make money and sell you the part)
