Replacing Ignition Switch
 
How should I go about doing so? I just got a new one, for my 82. I heard this can be an awkward procedure, so I think I'll ask here before attempting it first. :to_order:

You need to remove the steering wheel, shroud and unbolt the pod to move it out of the way. PM me your email and i'll send you detailed instructions for a 82.

Info emailed to you, good luck.

Thank you much. :jumper:
I'm going to have a go at it tomorrow.

Removing the steering wheel. Does this consist of removing the horn pad and unscrewing that giant guy in the center?

Mrmerlin 12-19-2009 06:07 AM

to remove the horn pad grip it on either side and try to quickly pull on either side , it will snap off of the 4 stand offs once this happens then remove the push on wire.
You need a either a 27 mm socket to remove the nut mark the shaft to wheel first.

Disconnect the battery before doing any electrical work

This is prolly a noob question, but when reconnecting the battery is it suppose to create so much spark? It looks like it's going to shoot straight at me.

Mrmerlin 12-20-2009 07:04 PM

normal if you have an amp running and if you left any elex systems on or if you have a dirty connection clean it with a Deoxit 100

Hi Guys.

Cannot express my gratitude enough that you write all this stuff and all the information is great. THANKS…!!!

I am new to the world of 928 and already fell into the trap about brake up-grades…. I have a 1982 928 (base model) ROW and I am now told it has S-brakes…that is going to cost me a lot of money…

Anyway…. ignition switch. Mine works but is very worn…. I will need the instructions….

But how does one key the switch to the car key??

Yeah stupid question.

Regards

The ignition switch is separate from the key tumblers and just uses two screws in the back to hold itself onto the steering column.

There is no need to rekey a lock.

Also as for brake upgrades, you can upgrade the rears to 4 piston calipers and put better pads on the front.

The S calipers are a huge improvement to the ones 81- had. All 82 cars got S brakes by the way :).

Thank you.

Yes…learning all the time. I did not know the tumblers were separate. Are they cheap to restore?

Thanks for the tip for the brakes. I will get better pads. That is cheaper.

I found this - http://perfexmfg.com/brakes.php

Seems too good to be true. Has anyone one this?

Thanks again

Dan

I would love to have these instructions as well if it's the same general idea as my '78
