I do not have key That is why I am replacing
you will need to drill through the lock..[where the key gos in]drill back far enough to where the lock pin that holds the lock in,will push in and let the cylinder pull out.
sorry for not getting back to you. Drilling cylinder did not work. Drill bit actually broke off in cylinder making it more of a headache and further drilling useless. I actually looked at the new cylinder and positioned the same as the one still in car and cut out a piece of the cylinder housing to expose the slot spring holding it in. This was far easier than what was being suggested by you and others. You might pass this technique on to others.
