So this video shows how to remove the ignition actuator housing when the actuator is riveted into the housing.

Best video. The 2006 ignition cylinder is nearly impossible to release without the ball inflation needle trick. I fought with taking cell phone video and fighting with it for a couple hours in the heat trying to get the lock out in order to install a new one. I love our 2006 Cruiser, but can't afford to shell out $400 to the dealer every time a part gets cranky or dies, like the door window lift motor did two months ago. Easy fix for a novice mechanic. Getting this lock out was a pain, because apparently the 2005 model pin could be depressed with a screwdriver. This redesign must have been some genius anti theft feature. It kept me busy for two hours and I OWN the car!
