Push up on the lock cylinder retaining pin with a 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or small punch. Pull the lock cylinder from the column housing

The key has to be turned to the on position to depress the retaining pin. Once its turned then the retainer should push in easily. It should be located about 3/4 of the way down on the housing on the bottom (you should see a small hole with the retainer)
