Drill through the lock. There is a "gear" on the back of the lock. Try not to drill through it. After you drill through the lock you can use a screwdriver to turn that gear to the right position (RUN or ACC )depending on what kind of car you have. Then all you have to do is remove the steering wheel and mis. parts to get to a screw that holds the ignition switch in. Then remove the lock and install the new one.
