Key tumbler fell out

Hello,

When I went to pull my key out of the ignition yesterday the key got a bit stuck and when I jiggled it a little to pull it out the chrome bezel that locks the tumbler in fell out. Now the tumbler is out as well and I cant figure out how to get the tumbler in and lock the bezel in place.

I see a pin on the bottom of the ignition cylinder that I should be able to push in and pull the cylinder out but I cant seem to push the pin in at all.

Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance!

The pin will only push in when the ignition is turned to the on position. Reach in and turn the switch on with a screwdriver and you should be o.k. If the pin pushed in while in the locked position it would be way to easy to steal the truck.

I would replace the ign plug if it continues to happen.

Thanks Expypate! I did that and went to Ford to get a new cylinder. There was a tab broke off in the cylinder that prevented the chrome bezel from holding the tumbler in place.

I'm glad you got it back together. I was a locksmith for years, but now work in the wholesale side of the business. Amazing what you forget when you don't do it everyday.
