Hi. its very unlikely that you will ever remove the broken key from the barrel. your best bet is to replace the barrel complete with key. from a breakers yard.

I broke my key for my car and it was the only one... i would like to know how to put the new ignition in


If the ignition switch is OK remove the switch and take it to a locksmith. They can simply make you another key (s) much cheaper than a new switch. It's about 99% that you can check the repair manual for your year & model vehicle at your local library. The job isn't real difficult.
