What year? Up to about 1995 (the old body style) with the common 10 cut key
removed without the key. It does destroy the lock though. Normally, you would
turn the key to the RUN position, depress a pin on the cylinder, and pull out
My big Snap On screwdriver with wrench flats up by the handle works well.
the "wings", tap in the screwdriver, turn to "RUN" position with a wrench,
pin, remove cylinder.
I used to have a tool called a Ford Bypass Key. It fell into the legal realm of
picks, slim jims, and such. It looked like a socket with teeth on the inside and
guide that looked like a stubby key blank. You tapped it onto the cylinder with
hammer and turned it with a wrench. Of course, it destroys the cylinder but it
hurt the column. Those Ignition cylinders arent really that strong.
I did a search a while back for the Bypass Key tool and found it on a site for
$25. D****d if I can find it now.
