To remove you stuck key. Remove your steering wheel plastic covers. When bottom cover is fully removed. You should see a silver/platinum circle that is screwed under the key lock and it has a small silver little thin plate under it. Stick 2 pennies in between the silver little plate and the circle and that should release your key and it will also keep it from getting stuck. You can now remove it normally has a temporary fixture untill you replace your key lock. Hope this helps. This worked great for my 07 cts.
