Default Removing key switch from 1993 DS dash

Hello,
Iím trying to surprise my sister with new dash for her 1993 club car DS but Iíve run into a problem with removing the key switch from the old one. I read that you use a flat head screw driver to pop the case off the front and either Iím prying at the wrong thing or that doesnít apply to this version. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I found this on the manual:
6. Remove key switch from the dash:
On vehicles manufactured prior to December 19, 1994 (serial numbers lower than 9522-436452):
Hold the key switch and use the switch tool (Club Car Part No. 1012801) to turn the switch retaining nut on the outside of the dash panel.
On vehicles manufactured on December 19, 1994 and later (serial numbers 9522-436452 and greater):
From the back of the dash panel, push down on the retaining tabs surrounding the key switch and remove the key switch cap.

Hold the key switch and use a 1 inch deep well socket to remove the switch retaining nut from the outside of the dash panel.

I have no idea what that tool looks like or could even find a picture.

Suggest you go one step further and make a trip to the auto parts house. Pick up an inexpensive generic car ignition switch with a unique key for better security and throw the old switch out with the dash panel

When I was searching the forum last night I thought I came across a lot of posts saying that those switches donít work, because of a car switch having different stages meaning different things where as a golf cart is pretty much just on/off but with 4 connecting spots? Would love it if I did.

Anybody that would say such a thing simply does not understand basic switching. A generic automotive switch will have a simple on/off switch & a spring loaded momentary switch function for the starter contact. It may also have on plus accessory or accessory only position. Careful all of this does not muddy the waters for you. Select the simplest switch.
Obviously you will only be using the 2 terminals associated with the on/off feature.
Good luck

The Club Car ignition switch has two separate contacts. When switched off there is a closed contact that grounds the ignition system killing the engine. When switched on the other contact closes putting 12 volts to the solenoid in the black box under the seat.

I stand corrected. I clearly did not see I was in the gas section. My apologies.
