Attempted Car Theft; Key Wont Turn
So someone tried to steal my car last night...I see they damaged around the lock cylinder and inside where the key goes... Is there any way I can remove the cylinder and get the key to turn? I don't care if I have to take all the pins out, I just really need to drive this car!!

Fixed my own problem: I put the key in the ignition and then I got a vice grips and attached it to the outside of the cylinder...gently turned it until it went to the acc position. Then I used the vice grips to turn it back, and after that it's back to normal!!
