CHEVY TO REPLACE IGNITION CYLINDER

2002 Chevrolet Malibu

Electrical problem
2002 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles

I have recently had a problem with removing the key from the ignition. When the key would not come out I could jiggle the stick in park and then the key would come out. My sister was driving the car and managed to rip the key out of the ignition. Now the key will go in but it will not turn. I got a new ignition cylinder and went to install it, but to remove the old cylinder the key needs to be in the " run" position. I cannot turn the key. Is there another way to disconnect the cylinder?

Is the release pin for the cylinder at the outside of the housing where a paper clip can be inserted?
