I am trying to remove the barrel from the ignition switch. I'm done removing the panels. It was a very easy just the half a dozen screws and a little soft touch.

Now I need to know how to remove the barrel without removing the big circlet of the switch. I heard that drilling into it helps since the Barrow is going to be thrown away anyway.

I don't have the old key to sort of pull out the barrel are the products. Does the barrel come from the front or just slide back from the back. I was told that I don't need to mess with a big clip but there is a smaller clip somewhere.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If it's in the locked position, it needs to be drilled out.

From an ancient X9 manual:

And if you look at the new tumblers, on the end away from the key, you will see a groove. This is what the clip holds in. So if you look at the slot on the top of the barrel the tumbler is in, you can push the tumbler in until you see a small wire that looks like a staple, holding it in. Pull that out. Then drill the tumbler out, and you can pull it straight out.
Here is where it goes, below is what it is, then where it is.

Thank you for the invaluable information.
