Yes, as the others have said, you can't remove the lock cylinder without a key that works it. Only a working key can get the cylinder into the "locked" position, which is where it needs to go before you can turn it further using the paper clip. Also, if you have 2 holes, the paper clip only goes in the top hole. There is a way to remove it by drilling a hole in the face of the lock cylinder, after popping off the chrome cap. If you want to try that, I can give more info. Or, if you can drive your car, drive over to a locksmith and have him take it out for you and pop in the new cylinder.
