Hi albert arthur,

Thank you for the donation.

Sorry to say that you need to turn the key to start position before the cylinder can be removed.

Check for any key bits still left inside key cylinder that is getting ijn the way. You might have to consider putting back the broken pieces to turn the key.

1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Position steering wheel half way between upper and lower tilt stops. Remove steering wheel. Roll back shift lever seal from upper and lower steering column trim covers. Remove tilt wheel lever. Remove lower steering column trim cover. Remove screws retaining upper trim cover. Lift trim cover to gain access to lock cylinder access hole.
2. Hold ignition switch in START position. Using a bent tip awl, push on lock cylinder retaining pin. Release ignition switch to RUN position, and pull lock cylinder set from lock module assembly. See Fig.
3. To install, insert key into lock cylinder and turn to RUN position. Ensure sector in lock module assembly is in RUN position. Insert lock cylinder into lock module. Align locking and positioning tabs with slots in lock module assembly, and press lock cylinder into position. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
