    Are you needing the inside part or the whole column?

    The inside part. I can't figure out why the key won't spring back when you start it? do all the wires have to be plugged in? I haven't put it all together yet because I'm trying to make the key spring back

    There is a rod that is turn by the key switch that runs down to another switch inside that its spring loaded thats what makes the key return or snap back. Make sure that rod is run down into the ignition switch lower on the column. If that don't work then the spring inside that ignition switch is broke. WHat you have up top is a key switch the actual ignition switch is lower on the column about half way down you should see some wires plugged in.
