Holes to release lock cylinder
once I has the switch removed the cylinder rotated easily so that I could push in the release button. 2 holes. The one on the bottom is the one to use.

Cylinder out
Note, no corrosion inside the cylinder, the switch was binding everything up. Now I need 2 keys, one for door, one for start!
