I tapped the tumbler housing and the ignition turned. Also I found out that all u have to do is remove the top cover and use the hole on the tumbler housing to remove it. U still have to disable the airbag though. And u dont have to remove the steering wheel unless u dont have a key.

Well the video I found where some guys did an ignition when the steering wheel was out of the vehicle. Second I discovered tapping it on this site.
