Hi, try going to the parts store and buying a chilton manual for the make and model of your vehicle. It has diagrams and step by step instructions. It will cost somewhere around 30 dollars of so and if you ever need to fix any other part of the same vehicle you will have it at your fingertips.
Take care

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: installing an ignition switch for a chevy malibu

Hello. You can view a free chilton's repair manual at google.com under ebooks. Or go to autozone.com and register for free.
There is a pin sized hole that will need to be pushed in and then you will need to turn and pull the ignition.

If you are replacing this due to the anti-theft light coming on and you having to wait 10 minutes with key in on position to reset computer and theft light, then forget it becuase it won't help. It is a bad passlock system that everyone is waiting on a recall for

1997 Chevy Malibu will start and then sputter.


It sounds like your engine is not getting a proper spark because of bad plugs. Check your spark plugs. To be safe install new ones anyway. I prefer NGK plugs.
