Hey guys,

 

Is there a special tool to remove the car ignition cylinder?  I have loosened it, but now it keeps spinning and not coming off.

 

Thanks for the help.

try holding it with the key and turning the bezel.....otherwise you have to get your hand on the back and it ain't easy

Thanks guys.  This will be a hard one since I do not have a key, that is why I am trying to remove it.  I will let you know how it goes.

without the key you will likely have to drill the lock to release it.
