Once I get it back in, I get nothing when the key is turned. No lights or anything. Before it came out, I would get lights but nothing else.I don't believe so. I had that piece out 10 times over 2-3 years. As long as it's not backwards. Each of the 4 sections are identical. What issue are you having. Won't go back in or no power after you get it back together?Does it matter what orientation the white cross shaped piece of plastic goes back into the ignition? I took mine out a week or so ago and am just now getting back to lube the slides and button everything back up. However I don?t remember how it was oriented and nothing I try works. Unfortunately the original pictures are no longer linked or it?d be an easy find.
