Question about Cars & Trucks
You have to remove the horn cover, remove the steering wheel nut, then use a wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Then you need a lock plate compressor to push down the metal plate and remove the retaining ring (spread the ring and lever off with a couple of flat screwdrivers). Next, remove screws holding the turn signal assembly, unscrew the emergency flasher button on the side of column, and remove the turn signal arm. Gently pull the turn signal assembly towards you so that it can hang by the wires and be out of the way. Then to access the screw that holds the lock cylinder in, pull out the key buzzer contact (a small plastic and metal gadget in front of the screw). Remove the screw and the lock should come out when you pull on it. Slide the new lock into place and reverse the previous steps and you should be good to go. Good luck.

turn the ignition to the on position then on the bottom of the steering colum just under the lock cylender thare is a hole that leads up to the cylender. get a straight pick or somthing with a point on it and insert in hole apply a little steady force while pulling straight out on the cylender. i am assuming you are talking about the ignition lock cylender.

No real simple way. Steering wheel removal is required and drilling out the retainer pin .
Taking out the cylinder from the outside is possible but damage to the steering column is a risk and lots of patience with a die grinder is needed.
