Default 1996 mustang GT lock actuator removal Question

I have a 1996 Mustang GT I have a broken lock actuator I am trying to replace. Okay I pulled the airbag and module,steering wheel,ignition lock cylinder I cannot pull the part out with needle nose pliers. I think it is stuck where the ignition lock cyl. turns the lock actuator but I cant locate where I can remove that part so I can pull out the lock actuator. (for extra knowlege my lock actuator is broken after lock cul and before the ignition sw.)

I would appriciate any help because this is my beautiful daily driver and I cannot see it sitting there without shroudings on and steering wheel off.

thanks,

randy

what are you trying to do? your lock actuator is the one which controls the locking and unlocking of the door with power locks. it is in the door not in the steering column. if you are trying to replace the ignition cylinder then there should be a little button under the cylinder and you depress it while the key is in the on position and it will just slide right out.

you mean what am I trying to repair. I already pulled out my lock cylinder. I am talking about the plastic piece that pushes and pulls the pin that switches the ignition switch into acc, on, run, and start. Mine is broken because when i try to start my stang with the key it starts but I cannot shut it off with the key. I have already verified that the problem is NOT the ignition switch itself, the switch works fine outside of its mounted position.

I NEED info in how to remove the plastic piece because this stang is my daily driver and I am stuck driving my 1980 toyota pickup that right now gets worse mileage than my stang

remember from my knowledge it goes like this:

key:lock cylinder: plastic gear : plastic ignition lock actuator(broken):ignition switch


thank you for taking the time to reply to my post and I hope I explained everything clearly enough please let me know if you need more info.

thanks,

Randy
