dont worry about the phone call offer, the site does that automatically. lets concentrate on your issue, you cant remove the tumbler without being able to turn it to the on position or using a slap hammer to pop it out

I'm fed up
Expert:  HDGene replied 10 months ago.

Body shop dent puller. thread it in, slap it out, install a whole new cylinder with a new key or code the new cylinder to the other door locks. You cant remove the ignition tumble without being able to turn the cylinder to on, there is a small button on the underside of the housing it sits in you depress to pop it out

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Can I remove without damage
Expert:  HDGene replied 10 months ago.

You can remove the steering column covers and find the small access hole and try to punch it in, but you will probably damage the cylinder.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
