Replacing ignition switch - 1996 - 993

Recommended Posts

How to do get to the ignition switch on a 1996 993? any one have suggestions before I start taking everything apart?

I have the classic symptoms - A/C problems, door alarms working sporatically, locks no always activating. All depends on how I shut the key off. I have a replacement ignition switch. How do you recommend I install? Any tricks or things to know?

Guess my real question is how to get access to the back of the unit to remove the screws and replace. Do I drop the steering column or remove a dashboard section. Since the back of the dash is pretty tightly packed, I am hope there is a "Porsche way" of getting to is without dismantling the dash. I appreciate your prompt response with the information above, hope you have some thoughts and guidance on accessing switch. Thanks, DM

On the later modeles there is a lower dash panel or dict that needs to be removed. Then you kind of have to position yourself under the dash and reach the screws.
