Long in to mitchell's DIY and read.
btw most modern car like this , the switch is made to be as hard as possible to remove. not by accident, its law here in usa
and has many antitheft blocking methods every newer year.
so,, Ill read the book just for you, now.
2001 USA rodeo, no where else !
non sport model, (wild guessing that.)
I wonder, why not take off the covers and look.
see if it can be removed after the steering anti-theft collar security bolts are remove (no fun that)
that is what I do, I LOOK first then wonder. saves a ton of work.
that. 2 plastic covers off. and gander. at it.
step one is defeat air bags now.. do not risk life on these BAGS.
the shop manual tells you how,
some guys chop up parts to avoid this, I DONT.
here is the spoon fed words. out of FSM
if you can read this, you learn fast lots of pitfalls. added to your first.
WARNING The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the steering column in the "LOCK" position before disconnecting the steering wheel. Failure to do so will cause the coil assembly to become uncentered which will cause damage to the coil spring assembly.
Move the front wheels to the straight ahead position, then use steering wheel remover J-29752 to remove the steering wheel.
NOTE The SRS coil is a part of the combination switch assembly, which can not be replaced separately. Therefore, be sure not to remove the SRS coil from the combination switch assembly.
go to mitchells' DIY and read like everyone else does.
we make our own pullers, so never need to buy them.
making pullers is part of any job.
makes having spare keys sound cheap. no?
on newer cars, 10x more cost....

turn the ignition to the on position then on the bottom of the steering colum just under the lock cylender thare is a hole that leads up to the cylender. get a straight pick or somthing with a point on it and insert in hole apply a little steady force while pulling straight out on the cylender. i am assuming you are talking about the ignition lock cylender.

I had something similar on my merc
but yours sounds similar.
the fact that you say the steering lock no longer works is very worrying, most times the key not going past position 1 is due to the steering lock being actuated and the pressure in it has to be released before the key will turn, you will have to go from lock to lock the find where the steering lock actuates when this happens follow my wiggle method of turning the steering wheel slightly when the steering lock is on the disengage it. ie keep trying the key whilst wiggeling the steering wheel.
hope that helps

The ignition key cylinder in a Buick
unlocks the ignition and allows the Buick's engine to start. The
cylinder contains a switch on the end of it (inside the cylinder) that
sends an electric signal to the starter motor. When the ignition key
cylinder fails, the Buick won't start. When this happens, you'll need a
new ignition cylinder. Purchase replacement cylinders from Buick.
