to remove the tumbler, put the key in and turn it to position 1
take a piece of wire maybe 20gauge
find a hole on the tumbler just to the right of the key
push the wire in and depress the button thet locks the tumbler(barrel) in the column
keeping button depressed, pull out the tumbler
hope this helps, or you can also order new tumbler with 2 keys, factory made. i purchased mine for about $70. do not buy it from the dealer though unless you have loads of $$$. find it online, not too hard.
no need for a mechanic, and a good locksmith may be able to pop out a key in a few minutes if yours are not lazer cut.
