I have the radio and heater removed, two screws on the radio side removed, electrical connectors removed, I can release the lock tab for the park/lock cable but can't seem to push it back far enough to remove it from the housing, also not sure how to remove ignition bezel and light ring
Removal & Installation
Remove turn signal switch. See TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. With ignition key removed, remove buzzer switch. Insert key into lock cylinder. On all except "C" body, turn lock cylinder to LOCK position. Remove lock cylinder retaining screw.
On "H" body, remove pivot and pulse switch connector from bulkhead connector and remove 13-way secondary lock. Remove pass key wire terminals No. 12 and 13.
On "C" body, remove lower and upper column shroud. Turn key to START position. Push lock cylinder lock pin using 1/16" Allen wrench. Release key to RUN position.

The ignition switch is in the dash not the steering colum.

Which one are you trying to replace? Is it the ignition switch or the ignition cylinder lock?

The one in the dash the key goes into.

I'm trying to attach a photo, the photo you added does not look like my ignition lock cylinder, mine is in the dash, I have to go through the radio, hvac opening to get to it, it's not in the steering colum

I don't know how to attach photos, if there's a number I can message them to I'd like for you to see them so you can see I'm not crazy.
