1971 250C ignition cylinder replacement

I was given a 1971 250C from a neighbor after I picked up a 1976 300d at an estate sale, The car, aside from paint seems rock solid. I pick up a new battery removed the spark plugs placed some oil down the cylinders as it has sat since 1999, that is the last day of registration anyway. When I hooked up the battery the engine turned over, not with the key, it turned over as soon as I connected the battery. The ignition lock cylinder was "floppy" in that the key did not have that return pressure at start. Under the dashboard I reached up and the rear part of the ignition just fell out. How do I get to the cylinder removed to replace or at least examine the old one.
Thank you for your help in advance
