Hi Randy, My name is***** will be glad to help if you still need help. Let me know.

To remove the lock cylinder from the dash mounted switch pull the switch out,turn it until you will see a small horizontal slot under the key part. There is a little tab in this slot that is spring loaded. Take a paper clip press this tab down and at the same time pull on the chrome edge where the key goes in . This allows the lock cylinder to come out of the switch. Placing the key in the switch makes it easier. Reinstall is the same , depress the small tab and slide the cylinder in. Make sure the key turns when you are done.On the back of the cylinder is a small pie shaped raised area. In the switch there is a milled out area in the same shape. Make sure these are lined up as you slide the cylinder into the switch. Let me know
