SOURCE: Ignition lock cylinder removal
Talking about pulling the air bag,removing the clock spring,
special tools for the lock plate,then it gets easy.
Disconnect the batt. for like 20 min to kill the air bag,remove the bag ,then the wheel,(with the puller you rented),the tool to remove the clip for the lock plate come next( also rented from Auto Zone or such like)
The tumbler is held in with a pin that unscrews ,then the cyl. just slides out.

it is possible but you will need to drill out the old lock cylinder. The lock cylinder needs to be in the run position in order for the retainer button to releases. If you don't have a key than you will either have to have one made by a lock smith or a dealer.
If you cannot get a key then you will have to drill out the lock cylinder until you are able to turn it to the run position.
