View Full Version : Ignition Cylinder Removal Help

I have a 99 Grand am gt coupe and I am trying to remove the entire ignition cylinder housing from the car; however, I am running into some trouble. I have read other threads on this site about this problem, but it doesn't seem to work for me. From what I see there are two electrical connections to the housing as well as a transmission interface which is a black cable attached to the back. My question is how do I take off that cable? There is a clip in the back that I have tried pressing in, but it seems that the cable is attached inside the housing somehwere, making it difficult to pull out by just depressing the tab. Any tips/Haynes manual suggestions (in which case I don't have one).
