Pull the horn cover by removing the screws on the back of the steering wheel. Then pull the center nut of the steering wheel and using a steering wheel puller, pull the steering wheel off. Then pull the plastic cover and anything else that is in the way. You should then be able to see the turn signal switch. By turning the turn signal one way or the other, you should be able to remove the screws that hold in the keyswitch in place. After the screws have been pulled, the tumbler mechanism should come right out.

After replacing the ignition lock cylinder on a 1989 Ford Bronco how do you fix an automatic transmission that will not shift?

You replaced the ignition lock, and it will not shift out of park? If that is the situation, it sounds like the column is out of sync. More details are required to give a solid answer. A more common issue with these is the actuator rod in the column breaks. If you replaced the lock because it was turning hard and wasnt always cranking when turned, this may be your problem instead of the lock.
