My question is,.. is there an easy way to remove the ignition switch without the key? I need to replace it, and or get new keys, I was hoping to just put another new one in, is there an easy way to get it out without keyor damage to dash?

Hey Barry. Not that I know of unfortunately.
Many an EB owner has had to deal with this, but I think most just end up sacrificing the switch by drilling it out (the cylinder that is) because it's usually less expensive than having a locksmith make a home visit to jiggle a few tumblers.

I imagine an experienced smith could get it out in a minute or two.

Wait for others to chime in and see if they've had this experience. I've always had keys, so it was easy.
Good luck!

Paul
