Best Answer

you have to have a small chisel or a screw driver and a hammer to take off the two bolts that is holding down the key cylinder. those bolts does not have a head like ordinary bolts have. angle the chisel so that it would bite a little of the head. gently tap the chisel going counter clockwise. be careful on the chisel not to take the whole head of the bolt, because you will need them to put the new key cylinder back on. good luck.
