When changing the ignition cylinder along with the PATS ring, the parts go in, in what order?

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 12:40 PM about the 1996 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is a notch on the lock cylinder that corresponds with a groove in the
steering column. On the pats ring there is a plastic finger which occupies the
same groove as the notch on the lock cylinder. Now...if I put the PATS ring on
first, the notch on the lock cylinder cant get in the groove bacause the rings
plastic finger is in the groove. If I put the lock cylinder in first I cant get the
PATS ring over the butterflys that helpturn the ignition. I tried seperating the
lock cylinder from the tumbler, inserting the outter sleeve of the cylinder, then
the pats ring, then tried to insert the tumbler and key, no good. Any help greatly
appreciated, thanks, Paul
