Ignition key will not turn. Always had to get it in just the right spot but now, it will not unlock at all.

That's a bog problem when the key will not turn.
You will need to cut the steering lock from the steering column in order to repair it.
When the key won't turn there is no way to take it apart without cutting.
Just shoot me now.
I know! If you are persistent you may be able to get the key to turn one more time so that the lock can be removed without cutting the lock out.
It's still a lot of work but not as bad as having to cut it.
If I am able to get it to turn, what is the procedure for removing the lock
I can post some instructions to remove it if you can turn the key.
It will take me a minute
Will I have to remove the dash?
No need to remove the dash.

No dash removal is the best news I could hope for. Thank you very much
