OMG... the irony of this. My 87 did the same thing yesterday. My key ended up broken in the cylinder.

(1) quickly ordered a new replacement cylinder from Centerline
(2) remove 4 of the 5 steering wheel shroud cover screws
(3) remove fuse box knee-blocking
(4) remove 'the other' knee-blocking piece on the right.
(5) remove the last steering wheel shroud cover screw, and carefully pull apart the plastic covers.
(6) praise God, Allah, Buddah, and the ghost of Enzo Ferrari: my ignition switch had been previously changed, so my steering-lock pin was a simple thumbscrew to remove.
(7) disconnect the ignition cylinder 3-pin harness thingadoodle.
(8) pull out old ignition cylinder and look at it lovingly.

(9) check FedEx tracking number from Centerline.

(10) ... tomorrow, do everything in reverse and enjoy the car again :)

The photos in this thread got me thinking - and perhaps concerned that I have ordered the wrong item for my 87 Veloce.

What is this small connector on the exterior of the switch? (see circled area). The switch I removed from my car doesn't have it.

Thank you in advance for any guidance!
