    Hi,
    This is what I tell everyone that has this situation:

    If your deadbolt has a removable plate around the bolt:
    1. Remove the faceplate from the edge of the door
    2. Using a 5/64" Allen wrench (it may need to be slightly larger or smaller), insert it next to the bolt (of the deadbolt) toward the side of the door with the keyed cylinder, unscrew the set s***w.
    3. Using the existing key, insert part way and use as a screwdriver to unscrew the cylinder.
    4. Remove the screws from the inside thumbturn (or do the same for the interior cylinder).
    5. Remove the screws that face the inside which go through the bolt mechanism.
    6. Slide bolt out of housing.

    If your deadbolt has no removable plate around the bolt:
    1. Pry off the trim plate on the inside cylinder.
    2. You will see the mounting screws below it.
    3. Remove those screws and you can get the rest.
