Question about Nissan Altima
The lock cylinder is secured on to the steering column using two shear-off bolts (their heads shear off after a certain torque is applied while tightening them. So, you can not uncsrew them.).So you will have to drill out the security bolts on either side to remove the lock cylinder easily.
Start with a small drill bit and get larger and larger.The lock cylinder will fall off.
Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.

If your key is magnetic and it is not jambed in there to much you may be able to get a magnet and pull it out. If it is stuck pretty bad you will have to take the steering column apart, but trying calling a lock smith first, he may be able to help.

The key is worn out. Take the key and your VIN number. Located in the windshield drivers side at the bottom or on the drivers door or in the door jam . Take them to the dealer and they will cut u a new key.
