According to this video, the key has to be in the accessory position in order to remove the cylinder. I would spray it full of WD-40 and wiggle it until it finally moves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vREcs5HG41E

Thanks, but we tried the lubricant and it didn't work.

Well I guess you will now have to call a locksmith or just drill it out. Do you have a second key? Maybe it's your original key that's worn out.
