Some debris got down into the key turn switch and it is starting to not turn smoothly. I want to disassemble it to remove crap b4 it jams completely. & I dont have a manuel.. 2 or 3 different ways to do it, but I want the correct way. Can anyone help?
sticky tiny little key chain fell down into the key turn on switch. It's going to turn in to a
huge prob if I cant get them out. It's already sticking. Poor single mom w/no $$$ needs
help. How can I get into the switch or take it apart to fix the prob?
First is the little key chain metal?
No.. I dont think so.. they're ittybitty shiny squares from a good ol' walmart junk keychain. The second I knew what created the prob. I instantly chucked the pretty shitty key chain. Could still be in my back seat.. LoL... But Prob isnt metal.. & I hope not, bcus I have a feeling your feedback wont be good.
Thank Goodness -- they are plastic... Put they screwing my life & the life of the car... up.. how can I remove them. Need the cheap man's version.. Thank You for any and all of your feedback.

Go find you,a set of the real small screwdriver set,s,i was going to tell you to magnitize the scew driver and stick in key slot,but that wont work for you like it did for me,so you need to get super glue on the end of the longest little scerww driver you can find,just a dab on tip of it ,stick it in remove debree,,
Yes T_S_T .... ok.. What's the trick..? wait a second,,, Your 'truck" ??? truck key switch on shaft.. Saab key socket , down... inbtween seets.. The stinkin idiots. What were they thinkin..? Pls.. help me.. b4 my key kills my car.....
No. TST .. it wont break down. It's jamming I have to push down harder to get the key to turn. It sticks too. only been 2days and its getting worse. I want to know how to get into the key chamber. Prob should look on the saab site????
Ok,,im gona help you ,yes i know your key placement,and if you dont want to try what ive said,then try this,Go to wallmart,by a can of pressured air,like you clean keyboards with,take straw,stick down in key cylinder,and let it blow it out.
Even if you remove cylinder,it want come apart,you will have to replace it any way.gurl :)
My kid is 17 also.. Whis she had done it so I could blame it on her.. But this is all on me... Errrr !@#$$%^
Trying to help....that,s what the saab site will tell you ,replace cylinder with new one.
No... No I dont believe it.. There is always a way .. Back yard mechanics have been rippin the Fatboys off for years.. I'll get it,, I will. I need fine fine surgical tools.. Going to go get sub & think this over.. I''ll be back.. What State r u in.. . No.., not state of mind... .. However I "AM" in a Saab State of mind.. lol
