Ignition replace or column replace
Picked up a junker for 300$ after a car accident... So now I have two 2007 cobalts in my yard. A coupe and a sedan.
The sedan has a shaved key and so naturally the anti theft is turned on.
So it doesn't crank but the key is shaved in a way that the ignition cylinder turned still.
So I assume that I could potentially Rob my crashed coupe of the ignition cylinder and computers to make the sedan work. (Local Chevy dealership said that would work)
So far I've removed all the panels and the airbags from both (again their both 2007 models) but when I go to get a steering wheel puller and yank the wheel out I come to the problem that the steering wheel is not threaded where you insert the bolts for the puller.
That issue has me against a wall because I don't want to ruin the clock spring in both cars.
So I'm pondering if I pull the steering column will my lock cylinder come out with it. (Side note dash on sedan says "power steering" and I hope the coupe column cleers that up)
At this point since I am unable to pull the steering wheel I want to know if the lock cylinder will come out or if anyone has a tip or trick on how to pull the steering wheel
