    If Toyota doesn't have the records anymore from the VIN, the key code is also available on the passenger door lock cylinder and hatch/trunk cylinder.

    You pretty much have to break off the whole ignition portion of the steering column. Been there done that. I think I still have an extra steering column laying around if you destroy yours.

    I highly recommend getting a key from a dealer.

    The lock is in a casting which is the main column

    I bought a car with the lock busted off thinking I could just replace the lock.
    I ended up replacing the whole upper column, I stongly suggest removing the column,
    take it to a locksmith & let them make a new key or you'll have to change the dash, door, boot locks too
