Here's a time dependent question.

The Metro was parked down the street in a supermarket parking lot while they're repaving the lane in front of my house. The battery was low (dashboard lights but the starter wouoldn't turn over) so I took it home and charged it overnight.

When I went back this morning, some benighted soul had run a self-drilling sheet metal screw into the ignition switch. They abandoned the project when they realized the battery was missing. And the wheels are turn to left lock and locked.

So I guess it will sit there two more nights and even then it looks like there are selfshearing bolts holding the switch in the steering column.

Any ideas on how to remove the buggered part?
