Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key.

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
