any u way you look at it you will have to take the covers off of the steering column, normally u can pull the ignition out but without the key that cant be done, the column is easy to take aprt though

If you start cutting wires you will never get it to run right again. It will cut off jsut driving down the street or it will shut off when you adjust the sterring column up or down. You can get a replacement key cylinder from Autozone or Advance for 50. It is easy to replace, and much easier than hotwiring a car. Not that i would know anything about hotwiring anything...
