Question about Cars & Trucks
I have removed the steering column shrouds, the under panel to expose the unit but wiring harness and other components are hindering my progress. I removed all the screws under the dash panel but gave that up as a bad idea.
Wait. Maybe you're in the wrong place. All cars I have seen have the clutch master cylinder bolted to the firewall inside the engine compartment. You take off the line going to the clutch, remove two bolts or nuts holding the unit to the firewall; and remove the unit. The only thing maybe to remove under the dash is the pushrod from the clutch pedal to the master cylinder.
Now if yours is different, then proceed, but check under the hood for the clutch master cylinder first.

On 1993 Ford ranger to remove the ignition lock cylinder switch
You need to remove the Steering wheel.
Remove trim shrounds.
Set ignition switch to Run position.
If your vehicle is A/T trans. put the selector lever in Park.
You will see retaining pin. Push retaining pin inward and pull out the lock cylinder.
Unplug wire from lock cylinder.
To install reverse remove procedure.
NOTE'' If you don't have the key or the cylinder is locked.
Instead of push the retaining pin you will need to Drill with a
1/8 in ( 3.17mm) Bit to drill out the retaining pin.
Be careful DO NOT drill more than 1/2 in deep.
After you need a chisel to break away the cylinder cap.
You need a 3/8in (9.52mm) bit to Drill in center of the cylinder.
Drill aprox. 1 3/4 in( 44mm) Deep.
REmove metal shavings. And remove the cylinder.
Clean and lubricate the gear inside. and install the new cylinder.
OK............I hope this information work for you.

When you say you were able to remove it - does this mean the broken part of the key? if it was, then just take both pieces to a locksmith that cuts auto keys, and have a replacement cut. If it uses a transponder, make sure this is copied also.
With a working key, remove any plastic surround around the lock mechanism (put the steering wheel back on), and look at the lock mechanism around the actual lock. Turn the key to position 1. This should allow a small pin on the side of the lock body to be pressed in - releasing the lock cylinder, which will come out on the key when you pull it.
These are some makes where you have to drill to depress the catch, but this is a hands-on job for an auto locksmith.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for using Fixya.

There are four (sometimes two) bolts that hold the steering column to the dash. remove them & column will come down to let you get in there.
follow instruction sheet with switch. if you don't get it centered correctly it wont work correctly.

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html
