I am sorry for the long wait

you will need a steering wheel puller and a lock plat clip removal tool to push down the lock plate to remove the lock plate clip

once the wheel is off and the lock plate is removed there should be 3 Philip screw heads to remove and lift up the turn signal switch enough to remove the lock retaining screw and then the ignition lock cylinder will slide right out

here is a picture of the lack plate tool pushing down to remove the lock plate c- clip
