They plug in to a connector under the dash on the column. Drop the column down and unplug the harness. Then you have to carefully and patiently pull it up through. If there is a cover over the wiring below the housings it just pops off for easy access. It goes together the reverse. Hope this helps.

    The following procedure is "generic" for replacing the lock cylinder. There are a couple of specialized tools you will need and saftey precautions concerning the air bag system.
    Take a look and let me know if you wish to tackle the job.
    Regards,
    To remove the ignition lock:
    CAUTION You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.

    • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
