What year F150 is it please?
I am working on setting up a file for you to download for removal, it's a bit more complicated as I am sure you realize. Just having some trouble with my site is all. Please hang in there!
Ok, I can't get the site working that I would normally use to make a link for you. So, here is the information for doing this without a key or a locked cylinder.
Ignition Lock Cylinder (Without Key)NOTE: The following procedure applies to vehicles where the ignition lock is inoperative and the lock cylinder cannot be rotated due to a lost or broken ignition key and the key number not known or the lock cylinder cap is damaged and/or broken to the extent that the lock cylinder cannot be rotated.Removal
(1) Lock Cylinder Assembly(1) Lock Gear, Steering Column Lock(1) Bearing, Steering Column Lock(1) Retainer, Steering Column Upper Bearing(1) Actuator Assembly, Steering Column Lock
NOTE: Retain the ignition switch actuating rod from the removed casting assembly and use it with the new flange casting assembly.Installation
Not sure I follow you, if it's a shift on the column you should just remove the roll pin that has the lever in the way. It shouldn't have to come out of park. reread the instructions, it's not saying to pull it out of park.
I want to send you this link as well.
It might help, the trucks a bit newer but the setup should be the same.
Please remember to rate my answer.
Thanks so much!
