You should not have to remove any of it there should be a small hole you just put allenwrench in to and you should feel a small bump push that bump and you can pull cylinder out and then you need to make sure you watch how cylender comes out and put new one in untill you hear a click then cylinder is locked in place and your done but if you have to take cover off all you should need to take off is the bottom

I changed the ignition key cylinder, and the gear shift still locks in park. If I step on the parking brake, turn the key to off, I can put it into neutral, start the car, and then put it into drive. I checked the fuse like the manuel said. It was ok. The gear shift just started to lock up in park. What can I do to correct this. It was easy changing the ignition cylinder with your help. Can you please help me to correct this?
