It's been a while, but I believe the trim ring on the dash around the key cylinder unscrews and the ignition comes out the back There should be a small hole in the face, insert key and turn ignition to "on" position, insert a wire (paper clip) into small hole and pull on key, the lockset should pull out, this will allow you to remove the trim ring around the key cylinder.
