1992 Isuzu Rodeo Question Replacing Ingition Cylinder

  • 1992 ISUZU RODEO
  • 4 CYL
  • 4WD
  • 100,000 MILES
The cylinder would no longer accept my keys anymore. I needed it to go to the airport so I popped off the ignitin switch running to the cylinder and just used a screwdriver to get started and popped the steering wheel lock pin. I want to replace the cylinder but I cant get it out. I have tried everything. I have pulled pried and twisted it for like 2 hours but it only moved a little bit. I did not see anything on the outside holding it in place. I tried to tap it out from where the ignition switch meets the cylinder but still no luck. Am I overlooking something completely obvious or do I have the most stubborn cylinder in the world. Much appreciated, it looks like a stolen car every time I start it w/ a screwdriver. It isnt stolen by the way.
Do you
have the same problem?
