    i have an aftermarket autozone (locksmart part #LC4210)ignition switch in my 54'. I came across an original factory 54' belair ingnition switch that I want to put in mine. It lights up and all. However I cannot figure out how to take this aftermarket ingition cylinder out. I've unscrewed the bezel and there's two tiny holes next to where the key inserts which I am assuming you have to put like a paperclip in to release it...but nothing...really frustrating. I 've even tried turning the key into different postions to try and get it to release. Anyone have one of these or know how to solve this issue??

    Most of the ones I have seen worked like this:

    1. Insert key and turn to the accessory position (usually counter clockwise all the way)
    2. Poke paperclip in hole
    3. Turn past the accessory position, the tumbler pops out.
