      Okay, so I am replacing the ignition lock cylinder and I have come to a halt.

      Once you get everything apart, there are 2 security bolts holding it in place behing the steering

      wheel. They are like rivets at the top and I followed a DIY exactly and they will not come up!


      here is the DIY I followed:

      Here is what they look like before I dremled them:

      This is what they are holding on:

      This is where I am stuck, they will NOT come up with a screw driver any which way:

      I do not know where to go from here and I don't want to pay the dealer to do the work and ONLY
      let me use a new part from the dealer when I can get one out of another car.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!


      Thanks,

      -Andrew

      use a hammer and a chisel to turn them out which will be the best way to take them out unless you have a air hammer which is how I take them out I can get them out in 20/30 seconds
