Early Bronco Ignition Switch Removal

Tech article by Dan Thomas (Jeepster)

The question comes up from time to time on how to remove the ignition switch on an Early Bronco. Here are the steps to follow:

1. The Key Cylinder must first be removed. Insert key, Turn to "ACC". Paperclip or stiff wire in hole (bottom right of Key)


2. Push paperclip/wire while turning key to the left, past "ACC"


3. The Cylinder will come right out.


4. No key? Use a Drill, Only go as deep as you have to so that the switch isnt damaged and the Cylinder core will come out. Check you progress as you drill.


5. This is what the Switch looks like.
Remove nut and wire.


6. Unplug wires from back of switch.


7. To remove from dash, The Switch unit and the Bezel have to be pushed together to compress the spring and the switch part rotated counter clockwise to seperate. There are 2 nubs on the bezel that position it in the dash so the Bezel might not turn.

8. Another view with the Bezel seperated from switch. Notice the tabs on the Bezel. They are easy to break off so seperate carefully.
