My CRX was recently broken into, the ignition cylinder is damaged. I need to replace the cylinder only, I see the pop button on the top but it is still not budging. Thank you in advance.

So can you turn the cylinder at all?If not what key position is it stuck in?

First remove the steering column cover.
Turn the switch to "I".
Push the pin on the lock body and pull the lock cylinder out about 1/2". Now you can turn the key to "O" and remove it.
Insert a key cut on a long blank, turn the switch back to "I" and push the cylinder back into the body.
Re-install the steering column cover
