            Ignition Lock Cylinder

            Motorcraft lock cylinder, removed old and installed new. Fits exactly like it is supposed to, comes with 2 new keys, and looks nice. For whatever reason, the warning sound that you left your keys in the ignition with the door open happens intermittently without the key in the ignition. Haven't figured out why, the install is pretty straightforward with no adjustments or calibrations needed. Jiggling the switch will make it stop, but it almost always comes back on within seconds. If I could figure out why it does that and fix it I would give it 5 stars. Other than that, I would buy it again due to it being an OEM Ford Part. But nonetheless, it does have a small flaw.

            Solid replacement

            This Motorcraft ignition lock cylinder has been working flawlessly as an exact replacement to the old jammed one that was in my 85 GT. Satisfied with the quality.

            Wasn't smooth

            I don't know if this is common or not, but the key grind was very rough and they key was difficult to get in and out of the cylinder. When the key was in it was difficult to rotate the key forward, seeming to stick at different points. I'm hoping with wear and time it will smooth out but it doesn't feel nearly as smooth as my original.

            Perfect replacement

            This fit perfectly and it was easy to install. It took me longer to remove the old lock cylinder than to put the new one in, and now I don't have to worry about anyone having any spare keys to my car.

            Great replacement

            My old one was the original and i recived it with only one key, was a bit iffy on start ups and i would sometimes have to crank it 2-3 times to get it to start. A new one fixed all my problems and looks great, install was a bit tricky but after i fiddled with it it popped right in no problems. and now i have a spare key :D

            American muscle delivered once again. This was a great OEM replacement on my 90 notch. Took 5 minutes to install. Works perfectly. Thanks AM!

            Real Ford Products, Real Ford Keys

            Less than three minutes to install with a hand turn screw driver. Two screws to bottom of steering column cover. Put old key in and turn ignition to "ON" Push retainer pin thru ignition lock housing hole just underside of the ignition lock. The ignition lock falls right out and this new OEM one slides right in!

            Great Product, Quick Install

            Just what the doctor ordered. As mentioned before, a small punch was all that was needed to get the old cylinder out. New one fit like a glove and turned over first try. Thanks again AM.

            Great Product

            Recently been doing restoration work on my Foxbody, and bought this item because my lock cylinder was all scratched up, and missing a key. Normal for it's age. This new lock cylinder came with two new Ford keys, and a nice black finish. It took less than 5 mins to install. Easiest tool to have is a small punch to push in the lock button to have it release, then it slides right out. Very happy with the item. Thanks
