I got into the lock and was pressing on the cylinder release when it broke free. I was able to remove the cylinder but cannot see anything wrong with it other than having some looseness at the end that shifts the pin to release the gear shift. Holding it in my hand I have found that when it is in the position to allow the key to be removed, if I press on the cylinder retainer I cannot turn the key. I cannot see how the cylinder could shift in its housing to cause this effect, but I am going to try to get a new one. Thanks for your help and God bless you.
