Has anyone replaced the Sonata NF ignition lock cylinder. I've replaced in
other cars but this one looks different. I have removed the kick panels and
have taken the plastic light assembly off from around the switch. But I can
not find the hole to press the button to release the cylinder. I don't have
the new cylinder to see the location of the release button. I sure hope that
I don't have to remove the entire switch assembly to pull the cylinder out.
Any assistance appreciated.
Are you there HyundaiTech!!

You've got the right idea. If I recall correctly-- not sure I do-- the hol
e is on the left side. You'll be able to push the plunger in once the cyli
nder is turned to the accessory position. You may need a right-angle tool
to get in there. I've found a cotter pin remove works well.
Something like the bottom tool in this picture:
Thanks HyundaiTech, it good to know its still the way I was used too. But I
don't think its on the left side, If I remember correctly I could see the
left side pretty good(and the bottom). Now that I know that its there I will
try to probe around for it. I wish I could find a picture of it on the web
so I could see where the pin is located. If you come across anything that
would help, let me know.
TomR, thanks for the help. I found the hole. I should have looked harder
the first time. I could clearly see the right side and bottom but couldn't
see the left side too well because it was against the steering column.
You were right, it is on the left side, about 3 o'clock. Knowing where to
look, I looked more closely with a flashlight and found the hole. I used
an allen wrench wedged in to small vise gripes to push it in.
Thanks again, HyundaiTech. You're the man.
