1. Open the trunk.
2. there is a flat, L-shaped metal key between the trunk body and the cylinder inside the trunk. It is about one inch wide and surrounds the cyninder.
3. Pull on the "tab" away from the cylinder (you may need pliers)
4. No other "small parts" to lose (no springs or screws, etc.)
The cylinder should come out the outside of the trunk.
5. Replace in reverse order...

Hope this helps!

    if you are unable to gain access from the turn key you need to get inside the trunk maby through the back seat even if you need to remove the 2 - nuts /bolts that hold it into place and clear away the insulated fabric and with a flashlight and a Flathead screwdriver be able to pop open the trunk maby even pin-nose pliers to turn the rod that connects from the lock to the release mechanism otherwise in desperate measures a good hammer and a screwdriver/small chisel smash the lock itself directly through the and into the trunk itself this will cause minor damage surrounding the lock but with sum patience you can re tap the lips or tangs back into place but i would use the last method only under dire circumstances

What fuse do I remove to turn off trunk light of


I imagine that there is not a specific fuse for just the trunk light. If you want to only stop the trunk light, better to pull the wire off the trunk switch, or remove the bulb itself.

I bought a used steering column from a scrap yard for my 92 chevy lumina and the dealership doesnt have a key code for it how do i remove the cylindar from the column


After the steering wheel is removed, and the lock bolt is removed, you can pull out the lock cylinder. You may need to carry the column to a locksmith and they can handle taking out the cyl for you. You may be better to swap cylinders with your old one, or a new cylinder will come with a new key. Special tools are neede to remove the steering wheel and compress the spring for the lock plate.
