    On just about every modern car, in order to change the cylynder lock, you will need to remove the steering wheel.



    On modern cars with air bags, this requires extra care because you do not want to damage the airbag in the process.



    I don't know of anyone in this list that is willing to provide step-by-step instructions for this procedure simply because of the inherent liability that ccompanies working with or around the airbag system of any car.



    This is one of those operations where you are better off taking the car to a certified Toyota shop. They have the necessary tools and equipment to remove your airbag system safely.

You can do this one yourself if you want it does not require removing the steering wheel. just the plastic housing from the steering column.
remove housing/cover. then look at housing with cylinder lock assem. on bottom about 1.2 inches or so from the end of the lock assembly you will see a very small hole insert metal pin into hole and push in while turning the key in the ignition backwards to accessory positionyou will feel the pin your pushing move in a bit, then you should be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. insert new assembly with key in the same position and turn forward this will install your new assemlby then reassemble your plastic column covers.

Crbbndt's solution is perfect. Just be aware that if you have trouble getting the new assembly back in, you may need to use a pair of long nose pliers to turn the blade inside the receiver hole back to the aux position from off. They sometimes turn them selves to the off position during the removal
