Question: Ignition switch replacement

When replacing the ignition switch, ive come to a point where no manual that i have access to and no video that ive watched online have been able to get me past. I'm to the point where i should either remove a screw to pull the switch or a hidden lever that i need a small bar to disengage to remove the switch, Neither of which exist on my make/model. I can't find anyone who knows that wont charge without coming out.
