1. Insert the ignition key and turn 60 degrees.
2. Use a 3/64 inch (1.2mm) wire to press down into the small bore on the face of the lock.
3. Pull the lock cylinder out.
4. If there is no bore, remove the steering column trim and press the bore on the side of the cylinder with punch to remove the cylinder.
5. Installation is the reverse of removal.
