See the link I sent you to - -Do you see the picture of 2 hands holding the cylinder?
Click on that picture - - -then follow alomg.
I am thinking you are trying to take the cylinder out in the dash - - You need to remove the trim first and drop the switch down and follow the article
I would say if the clip is bending you do not have the key in the correct position. I have just complted the 4th change of one of these ( due to lousy switches) in the past 6 weeks and have it down pretty pat. Insert your key, turn it to the LEFT one click, insert pin through tiny hole( and it should go in freely) pull out on key while holding pin in...the entire cylinder should then come out.
