since it will not turn to align the pin you need to visually look at the new lock cylinder and visually see where the pin would be and then take an 1/8 drill and drill a small hole in the outer lock case then using a pick or small alenn wrench push down to push in the pin to release the ignition lock cylinderyou can always get me back for FREE through this post even after you rate us hereif you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate me here
