You're looking for the ignition lock cylinder. Whatever you do, don't rip the old one out. Remove the lock cylinder correctly and replace it. If you have a factory security system the new keys will have to be programmed to the car. Your local Acura Dealer should be able to do that for you. HTH. -Jim
