For this operation, your local locksmith will use a cross-headed screwdriver to unscrew the securing screw while the door is in the open position.

Once this is taken out, the locksmith can also slide out the cylinder by introducing the key into it and rotating it to a 20 degrees angle.
Once the cylinder is out, the Keys4U local locksmith will measure it from the centre hole to both edges to find out the exact type of cylinder it needs to be changed with. For the new cylinder installation, the local locksmith will again introduce the key into the cylinder, rotate it to a 20 degrees angle and simply slide it in, then screw in the securing screw.
