My Mustang was stolen. The pictures bellow show the damage to the ignition lock cylinder housing. I have no idea how to approach this repair. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Looks like you may need a whole steering column. Did you file any insurance..If you can do it yourself , do it.

You have to buy a new column.
I've been there and know how you feel.

I am going to guess you have a 85-6 mustang from what I can see of the dash, it also looks like a tilt column ( I don't know if there is a non-tilt option) I have that model in my stash, let me look to see if that piece is replacable, get back to you tomorrow.

Another reason why theft should be a PUT TO DEATH crime...... Thieves are the slimiest slime and the police basically do nothing about them or theft...

The wheels of justice move slow.
I would say cut off his hand.
I used to think this, but in America the bleeding heart system would pay the crook to sit at home because he is now " disabled"... Put em on Welfare, EBT cards, SEction 8 housing, FREE cell phone, FREE water and electricity.... Tired of MY taxes going towards this......

Needs tilt housing replaced. I have done several. Real nasty repair. Tilt pins need to be removed bandaids at the ready. Hard to find a good tight used column

That went sideways fast, sorry.
Ok, can't find the 86 column I think I have, may have sold/traded it. So out of curiosity I grabbed a 97 up tilt column and broke it down to see the degree of difficulty that piece is to swap, I can say that I can swap it if need be but someone with less experience mechanically would be a head of the game to find another column.
Pm me if you want to go further.

I know this is 6 months old but I hope someone replies. I have the same issue. My ‘95 GT was stolen 11/29/21, I got it back a different color, trashed, filled with food wrappers, dog food and drugs. The ¥£€#% [email protected]& ripped the ignition housing ALL the way down one one side. Isn’t there just an “ignition lock housing replacement” we can get? I know they have it for other cars. I don’t wanna replace the whole column. Before stolen and after pix attached. Can you pick which are which? Lol
