Fig. Fig. 1 Remove the steering lock securing screws (arrows)-1977-79 200SX shown

The steering lock/ignition switch/warning buzzer assembly is attached to the steering column by special screws whose heads shear off on installation. The screws must be drilled out to remove the assembly. The ignition switch or warning switch can be replaced without removing the assembly. The ignition switch is on the back of the assembly, and the warning switch on the side. The warning buzzer, which sounds when the driver's door is opened with the steering unlocked, is located behind the instrument panel. Install shear type screws and then cut off the screw heads.
