A small punch or chisel may get it to turn.
If not you may need to drill the head off with a 6mm drill, this should leave a little bit of thead that can be removed with vice grips after the ignition is off.

How to replace the ignition on a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass cierra

If you mean the ignition lock cylinder:

Ignition Lock Cylinder CAUTION
If the car is equipped with an air bag, do not service the steering column or dashboard components. Extreme danger of air bag deployment exists even with the battery removed! Serious injury could occur. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Without Air Bag
  1. Place the ignition switch in the RUN position.
  2. Remove the lockplate, turn signal switch and buzzer switch.
  3. Remove the screw and lock cylinder. NOTE: If the screw is dropped on removal, it could fall into the column, requiring complete disassembly to retrieve the screw. To install:
  4. Rotate the cylinder clockwise to align cylinder key with the keyway in the housing.
  5. Push the lock all the way in.
  6. Install the screw. Tighten the screw to 14 inch lbs. (2 Nm) for adjustable columns and 25 inch lbs. (3 Nm) for standard columns.
With Air Bag CAUTION
Before proceeding, refer to Section 6 for information on disabling and enabling the SIR (air bag) system; otherwise, serious injury could occur.
  1. Turn the steering wheel so the vehicles wheels are pointed straight ahead.
  2. Place the ignition switch into the LOCK position to prevent undercentering of the coil assembly.
  3. Disable the SIR system. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove the coil assembly retaining ring, then disconnect the inflatable restraint coil assembly. Let the switch hang freely if removal is not needed. To remove the coil assembly proceed.
  5. Remove the wave washer, then the shaft retaining lock ring with tool J-23653-SIR to push down on the shaft lock. Dispose of the ring, it is not reusable. Fig. 1: Special tool J-23653-SIR or equivalent is required for pushing down the shaft lock to remove the shaft ring 86818085.gif
  6. Remove the shaft lock, then disconnect the canceling cam assembly.
  7. Remove the upper bearing spring, race seat and race.
  8. Position the turn signal to the right turn (up) position.
  9. Remove the multi-function lever and hazard knob assembly. Unfasten the round washer head screw and signal switch arm, along with the turn signal switch screws.
  10. Remove the turn signal switch assembly by unfastening the connector from the bulkhead connector. Gently pull on the harness through the column and disconnect.
  11. Make sure the coil assembly does not become uncentered, this could happen if the centering spring is pushed down letting the hub rotate while the coil is removed from the steering column.
  12. Remove the inflatable restraint coil assembly with the wiring harness from the column assembly.
  13. Remove the wire protector, then attach a length of mechanics wire to the coil terminal connector to aid in reassembly. Then gently pull the wire through the column.
  14. Remove the key from the steering column lock cylinder set, then remove the buzzer switch assembly.
  15. Reinsert the key into the lock cylinder, turn it to the LOCK position.
  16. Remove the lock retaining screw, then the cylinder. To install: NOTE: Make sure all fasteners are securely seated before applying the necessary torque. If you fail to do so, component damage or malfunctioning of the steering column may occur.
  17. Install the lock cylinder assembly, insert the retaining screw, then tighten to 22 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
  18. Insert the key into the lock cylinder. Install the buzzer switch assembly. Turn the key to the LOCK position.
  19. Install the turn signal switch assembly wiring harness through the column, let the switch hang freely. Connect the wiring to the bulkhead.
  20. Insert the coil assembly wiring harness through the column letting the coil hang freely. Attach the turn signal assembly with the binding head screws. Tighten the screws to 30 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
  21. Attach the signal switch arm with the round washer head screw, tighten the screw to 20 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  22. Install the hazard knob assembly and the multi-function lever.
  23. Install the inner race, upper bearing race seat and spring. Attach the turn signal cancelling cam assembly, apply grease for lubrication.
  24. Replace the shaft lock and install a new shaft lock retaining ring. Use tool J-23653–SIR or equivalent to push down on the shaft lock. The ring must be firmly seated in the groove on the shaft. NOTE: Set the steering shaft so that the block tooth on the race and upper shaft is at the 12 o'clock position. The wheel on the car should be straight ahead. Set the ignition switch to the LOCK position, as this will ensure no damage to the coil assembly.
  25. Install the wave washer, then attach the coil assembly, make sure it is centered correctly. Fig. 2: Centering the coil assembly is important in assembling the column assembly 86818086.gif

  26. Attach the coil assembly retaining ring, the ring must be firmly seated in the groove on the shaft.
  27. Gently pull the lower coil assembly, turn signal, and pivot (pulse) wires to remove any kinks that may be inside the steering column assembly. If you fail to do this you can damage the wiring.
  28. Complete assembling the steering column assembly.
  29. Attach the negative battery cable.
  30. Check the functions of the turn signal, make sure it cancels when turned on and the steering wheel is turned.

How do you remove the seat from a 1996 honda shadow vlx

Hi, There are two allen key screws that keep the pillion seat secured down. The riders seat then slides backwards to remove. Have a look inbetween the riders seat and pillion seat from either side of the bike. Prise the gap apart with your fingers and look inbetween. About an 30mm or so inside, you will see an allen key head screw. It is easier with a screw driver that takes an allen key drive as is very awkward to get a normal allen key down that deep. You will need to be in very good light or use a torch to look inbetween the seats as its very hard to spot. When you have removed the screws from both sides the pillion seat just lifts up and forward. The riders seat lift up and backward. Cheers

How do you remove the ignition switch from a 1994 honda accord

its easy, all you need is a screwdriver, a hammer, and a flat head screw driver. you need the screw driver to take off the plastic covering surrounding the ignition, its the piece between the steering wheel and the dash. theres some recessed screws you want to be sure to get or you will break the thing. i think there is a total of 6 or so you need to get. then there are plastic tabs you need to gently undo to get it apart (like those small plastic easter eggs kinda). from there you can see the ignition assembly in plain sight. from there you notice that there are only 2 screws holding the thing to the steering column. i was confused at first because it looks like there are 2 rivets holding it in place, but in fact they are screws whose heads have been shaved off in factory. all you need to do is take your hammer and flat head screwdriver, and wedge the screwdriver head inbetween the lip of the piece and the screw, and bang it towards the counterclockwise direction. this takes some time, and if at first you are scared, dont be. you dont care about that part anyways. you should have already gotten the replacement ignition (tumbler, key hole, and electronics in one solid piece) so you dont need that anyways. after you bang on it for a while, they should give a little bit, so you can basically unscrew them with your fingers. from there it is a quick switch. unplug the electronics from the unit, and plug in the new one, bolt it on and replace the covering and you are golden, and are $200 ahead of the neck punk mechanic who tries to rip you off. hope this helps! You may not even need to get the complete tumbler and key hole part. Your only problem may be just the ignition wire that connects to the back of the tumbler and is relatively easy to replace. This part may go for about 80$ . I would recommend that you try to replace this part first because it may save you from the trouble of replacing the whole ignition unit which costs about $250(this is if your car starts but does not stay turned on or if your car's power turns off when you are driving). I went through the trouble of taking the whole ignition unit off but just found that it was the ignition wire on my 90 Honda Accord. And if your actual key insertion cylinder is damaged, where you put your key in and turn the car on, then I found that most auto-parts stores Like Kragans or AutoZone have replacement key cylinders with a new set of keys for about $30. Don't replace the tumbler body if you don't have to because again, they are about $250. The Key cylinder should slip out of the body by pushing a little button down that is on the side while the key is turned at the I position. good luck!
