Key spinning in door lock help needed

Please help my key is spinning in my door lock.

I am trying to remove the lock itself to repair it, I have removed the door handle and lock cover to expose the lock but cant get it out, there is plenty of videos online for other models but cant find anything for an e83.

The e83 seems to have a different set up for removal than some other models. Do i have to remove the whole assembly via inside the door?

Thanks

Did anyone ever work this out? I have the same issue. Undo the 4mm Allen bolt from inside the door but the lock/barrel won’t come out.

I've done it on a couple of e83 (1st gen) so plenty on YouTube.
Not certain about the latter generations...if what you say is true...I just use the e46 videos.
Everything is on that YouTube
