    Default Chnaging 504 ignition switches

    I am about to change ignition switches on my son's 1978 504GL. There's nothing of help in my Haynes manual. The key still turns in the lock quite freely. I gather that the key must be turned before the unit can be withdrawn.....but to what position? Could somebody please explain the procedure for removal and fitting and advise me as to any particular points of caution which I may need to watch out for.
    Thank you

    there is a small bolt holding the switch in and there is also a pin that you have to push in when you turn the key to line up with a dot i think on the switch

    the pin is underneath the switch

    On some you turn the key to accessory and on others to just past accessory to a little dot.

    Default Thank you

    Thank you fellow Peugeotists. I've been out to European Auto Imports (quite a drive from Mt Eliza now that Basil has shut shop), bought a new switch and now I see how the whole thing works.

    Thanks again
