Ignition cylinder

How do I replace the ignition cylinder for a new one? The old one is so worn that the key can be removed no matter how it is turned. Plus I've installed the new door locks and want this to match.

Thanks for your help.

EDIT:: I've searched these forums and my two manuals, but can't find the procedure.

Turn the key to accessory,insert a paper clip in the little hole in the tumbler and push the clip in and turn key to the left and pull the cylinder out......JB.
