Hello

Sorry the information we have doesn't have any pics to go with the directions.

I also included a couple of other things just in case you needed it.

LOCK CYLINDER
Removal & Installation
Remove turn signal switch. With ignition key removed, remove buzzer switch. Insert key into lock cylinder. Turn lock cylinder to LOCK position. Remove lock cylinder retaining screw. Remove lock cylinder. To install, reverse removal procedure.

LOCK HOUSING
NOTE: Lock housing, which houses the lock cylinder, is the main housing around the column.
Removal & Installation
1. Remove steering wheel, SIR coil assembly (if equipped), turn signal switch and lock cylinder. Remove dimmer and ignition switches. Remove cover from lock housing. Disconnect cruise control switch connector (if equipped) near multifunction switch.
2. Disconnect multifunction switch connector. Set multifunction switch lever in OFF position (centered), grasp lever and pull straight out to remove. Remove lock housing screws. Remove lock housing. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Hello

One other thing. It looks like you may have a recall on your vehicle. The dealer may fix this for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on this to see if it applies to you. This is an old recall and it may not apply but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I have included it below.
