Steering Locked please help

Hi everyone I'm new to the forum... sorry if this isn't in the right spot.

I know this is well discussed topic but I searched and found nothing applicable.

So, My Steering is locked & key wont turn at ALL. I tried & tried to get it to release but no luck. I tore apart the steering column cover to expose everything. I'm pretty sure something in the lock cylinder is screwed up and isn't releasing the wheel. I can turn the car on by using a screw driver to turn that module behind the cylinder. So I know its gotta be the cylinder..right, cause its not turning. My thought was just to release that lock pin but its not there! just smooth metal.. so I have no idea how to release the wheel. Can't find anything on Google about e30s without that pin

Please help the car is just sitting in a lot... and I really don't want to have pay to tow it.

btw... 1991 325ix with airbag
