I hope you have this thing fixed but if not you can try this.
First I need to assume the "lock cylinder" will turn with the correct key installed.?
You must turn the lock cyl to the run position. I suggest disconnecting the battery first.
I pull the radio out to gain access to the ign. switch.
If you have a small mirror it will really help to find a small square hole in the top of the "plastic" part, "the ign. switch".
If replacing only the lock cylinder you will NOT need to take the 2 screws out holding the plastic piece to the dash.
You will need a tool of sorts so once to locate the small hole on the top of the ign switch and also have the lock cyl rotated to the run position, you press the tool into the small hole.
Tool--can be about the size of a medium screw driver--but the end will have a bend, a right angle bend and the bent piece approx. 3/8" in length.
You will be pressing down on a button help there by a weak spring, look on the new lock cylinder.
As you press down or inward pullout on the lock cyl.
It's that easy.
After installing the new lock cylinder, if that is what your are doing, you might not be able to start the car.
Most chevys have a chip built into the lock cyl. with a sort of password--if the car doesn't see the right password it wont start.
Question: if you need further instruction please let me know.
If the Lock cylinder does not turn, then the fix has another & different approach but you can do it.
