I did it once on some other car - the shear bolts were surprisingly soft and
didn't even need to be center punched as long as I was careful in starting
the holes. What you are doing is drilling the heads off, then removing the
shafts once the ignition is free. I bought some regular bolts from the
hardware store and remounted it that way. I imagine the screw heads could be
filled with epoxy after reassembly to make them tamper-resistant if that is
important... it wasn't to me.

That was kinda my thought - if somebody was planning to steal the car they
wouldn't be likely to take the cover off to see if by chance the shear bolts
had been replaced with regular screws. They would come with a plan and
execute it.

YOU DO NOT REMOVE THE SHEAR BOLTS to remove the ignition switch!!!!
The shear bolts are removed to change the *column lock*!

The ignition switch is held in by two tiny Phillips screws!

Actually,all they do is jam a big flat blade screwdriver into the key slot
and twist until the cylinder breaks.Then they remove the lock cylinder and
turn the switch part with the screwdriver.They work fast.

Screwdriver, big set of Vise Grips (pregapped to clamp tightly on
screwdriver).

Use Vise Grips to hammer screwdriver into key slot. Clamp Vise Grips on
screwdriver. Twist clockwise to break pin, pull cylinder out. Takes about
ten seconds.

You can open door and trunk locks the same basic way, only that takes five
seconds because you have more room to swing the Vise Grips and the cylinder
only needs to be turned, not removed.

In case anyone's wondering, I didn't have a previous career as a car thief,
I practiced on junk cars in wrecking yards.
