Default Need to remove some parts, don't know how.

The last time I messed with a PT was in 2003 and as u can imagine I don't remember much lol.
Need to know how to remove the following:

1) ignition switch- 1st gen and 2nd gen (a friend wants me to pull for his 2002)

2) door/hatch locks both- also on both gens

3) valve cover-on an NA ( the same on both gens, I'm assuming)

4) upper intake manifold - 2nd gen

Thanks
Eli

No thank you Eli. I have everything I need for now. Hopefully someone can help you with the lock cylinder. In the meantime, try this...

I would suggest getting a spark plug socket that has the rubber inside to hold the spark plugs after you unscrew the spark plugs. Also put some tape on the spark plug socket and the extension to keep them from coming apart when you are pulling the spark plugs out.

Thanks, but does anyone know how to get the DOOR/HATCH lock cylinders out? Possibly a page PDF from the shop manual? Thanks

I think you just want a picture of my 104lb wife holding a socket with my locking extension while I dead lift her off the ground.
