Take of the two covers on the steering wheel, take off the wire to the horn, next use a steering wheel puller to take off the steering wheel, next use a lock plate puller(make sure you get this tool $10 at napa) there are three screws may have to adjust blinker position to get to one of them, slowly pull out white plastic blinker kit thingy, next there are three torx silver screw next to one of them is a black smaller torx screw that one will let you take out the cylinder for the ignition repeat process backwards to reassemble.

-just did it myself.

Tie a string or wire to the harness so you can pull that back thru the column whn you have to reattach the new one.

How can I change the ingnition key cylinder on a 96 olds ciera?

You have to pull the steering wheel off, (with a steering wheel puller/installer) loosen the signal light control, and remove the lock screw that hold the ignition tumbler in. It is probably a torx head screw, and it will have a long unthreaded part below the threads .

How to remove the key and lock ingnition on a 1999 chevy cavilier

Detach the negative battery terminal and disable the airbag system if you have it. Remove the steering wheel. To do that remove the clip and the large nut and then use a steering wheel puller. (You will need to buy or rent a steering wheel puller They can be found at most auto parts stores) Remove the turn signal switch assembly. Place the lock cylinder in the run position. Remove the turn signal switch housing screws. If you have tilt steering column you will need to remove the pivit pins on the sides of the tilt housing. (you will need a pivit pin puller which can be found at an auto parts store). Pull the buzzer switch out (make sure you note how this is correctly replaced. If done wrong the buzzer will stay is a little plastic piece with two wires). Turn the lock cylinder to Accessory. Remove the lock cylinder screw which is by the buzzer switch you just removed. Remove the lock cylinder.
