You need to remove the steering cover to be able to see the pin, located on the lock body where there is a ridge. It is just a small hole whereby you need to push the pin in with a pointed object.

There is only one pin you need to push and it works only with the key in ACC position.

Our reference doesn't have any pictures, but it says the ignition lock cylinder is secured to the steering column by screws and of course, has an electrical connector.
