Rod to ignition switch

Yesterday I spent the day changing out the switch thinking that was reason I couldn't get jeep to crank well anyways prolly the solenoid .
Today when I was putting stuff back together the key will turn yet it is loose the rod is connected to the ignition switch just not to something in the column .
I've taken apart what I can yet can't seem to look into the round trim at base of dash/steering column .
I need to know how to get inside to see how the rod got unattached and to what it was hooked to.

Plz don't go say buy a chiltons. Cause I have one and it doesn't show what to do .

I should have included the link for the picture. I have done the same thing while replacing a CJ column so I feel your pain. It should be the same set up for a YJ column but to be honest I have never checked it.

The connection inside the switch.

I ran across a detailed rebuild of a column online the other day showing the teardown and reassembly if that is what you need I will try and find it and send you a link.

Here is the column rebuild I was talking about and it is a tilt. It's from a CJ but it should be exactly the same as the YJ.

You rock cause I've done lots of google searching to no avail .
When I get home Friday I'll print that out and get it fixed so I can try to figure out the real reason my jeep won't crank .

Thnx dude I owe you one !!

my jeep had a problem like that it might even be the same one. my key and tubler was broken. i thought it was the ignition switch but when i replaced that it still wouldn't crank. if you look on the ignition switch which is on top of the column there are two plugs the yellow wire is the starter and the larger red wire is power in if you touch them and it cranks then you have the same problem that i did.

Have been looking for this diagram for weeks now! Anyone know how to replace the gear which has broken in half in my steering column? It meshes with the actuator rack. I can remove the 5 screws that secure this part of the column, but once removed, the shroud goes all the way to the dash way past the ignition and there doesn't seem to be another way into it to get to the gear and actuator. Ideas?
