How do I get my car keys out when it is stuck in my Nissan Micra K12 ignition?

Try to turn the steering wheel gently from side to side while pulling on the key. Quite often the steering lock engages with the steering wheel shaft and it makes it difficult to get the key out while the shaft puts pressure on the lock.

Changing ignition barrel

The steering lock/ignition assembly is an armored item made of tool steel. To replace the barrel you will need to put the ignition key in position II and you will see a small hole in the silver surround . Inserting a thin pin into this hole pushes the catch aside and allows the key barrel to be extracted.

If there is no tiny hole on the face plate of the barrel you will need Mercedes to install your new barrel as it takes a special workshop tool to unscrew the key face plate.

How do I ge my key out of the ignition with out brakng it?

Remove the trims from around the ignition barrel.
There should be a small metal button to press in whenever the key is in either position 1 or 2 on the ignition barrel.
This will release the barrel from the housing.
Plenty of lubricant around the barrel and the key should come free.
