My key will not turn when put it in the ignition wheel is locked. I tried to pull wheel in direction there is slight movement and jiggle key or try and turn key it still wont budge. I tried pitting a little wd40 on key to loosen up tumbler no avail. Can I remove the tumbler and replace that without replacing the whole ignition switch cylinder piece?
Please help!

The ignition switch is replaced as an assembly. I am sure there is a way you can replace the tumblers but it does not have a procedure for doing it.

If it has failed then I would just replace it because it is probably easier. However, once you get it out, you may find what the issue is and are able to repair it.
