If this vehicle has the chip in the key and air bag, I would recommend that you have a professional do it. They can disable the air bag properly and when the tumbler is replaced reset the ECM so it recognizes the new chip. Even if it isn't equipped with a chip or air bag you still need special tools to get to the tumbler release inside the column.
