How do I remove the key cylinder from the ignition of a 1996 Geo Prizm? The Key will notturn all the way


Jiggle the steering wheel to release tension. If the key turns at all, it is not the ignition that is holding it, but the steering.

Fitting new ignition barrel series 3 1996 316i


It is a very small hole in the switch cylinder. About the size of a paperclip or maybe a bit thicker. It is to reset the ignition. If that does not work. you may have to replace the switch. try using aa paperclip or someting to push into the hole. Being vcareful not to force it too much. So it won't break inside.
