Re: 1989 cutlass oldsmobile with tilt steering wheel ?
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.

after removing the steering wheel and turn signal assy. there are teo slots (might have thin layer of metal blocking it, screw driver moves it) the slot closest to the key is the slot, I have seen them in the second one but thats wrong, you need something thin and strong, push ip and pull the cylinder out
You have to remove the steering wheel and the plate that is behind it with two screwdrivers. unplug the wire hareness to that. you will also have to remove the screws that hold you hazzard light button on and remove the bottom of the steering column. 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.
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 .
You will need to remove the steering wheel, if you have an airbag disarm it, this is very important, disconnect the battery and unplug the airbag diagnostic monitor, then remove the large nut retaining the wheel to the steering shaft, you will need a steering wheel puller to get the wheel off, very cheap tool avail from most parts stores, after the wheel is off remove the turn signal switch and move it to the left, under that switch you will see the pin that retains the lock cylinder, it will be a cross point screw, remove it, with the key turned to on remove the lock cylinder.
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 on....it 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
