You can replace the ignition lock cylinder in your 1994 Pontiac Firebird without removing the steering will. Remove the retaining ring at the top of the ignition cylinder. The ignition cylinder will slide out.

You will have to remove the steering wheel and everythin that surrounds the steering column in order to get the ignition switch out. I would suggest getting a good repair manual as this is not an easy process to describe without pictures and such.

I have not seen a way to do it without removing the steering wheel (and airbag).

On my 2001 Aztek, I could pull the key out when driving. To change the ignition without removing the steering wheel, take the two screws out from underneath the covering behind the wheel. Not the screws on the steering wheel. The cover will lift up but won't come off. Take an Alleen wrench and feel for the hole on top of the ignition (it will be a tight squeeze), and push in. I should also say remove the black or gray cover on the ignition switch (where the key goes in). Once you find the hole and push down on it, the ignition switch will come out.

If the steering column is broken on a 1989 Firebird, it may have to be taken apart to be repaired. If it is only the ignition that the thieves damaged, a new ignition can be installed.
