There is a special spring compressor used to compress the lock plate spring underneath it, then you will be able to remove the snap ring holding the lock plate down, and lock plate spring. You will then need to remove the blinker multi function switch. You will then have access to the bolt holding in the ignition cylinder. There are 2 wires attached to it that run down the inside of the steering column that will need to be unplugged at the base, and new wires threaded down through the steering column when installing the new ignition lock cylinder.

Dodge has a recall for the shifter that controls the steering lock. Check with you local Dodge dealer for this recall first. (It's free)

Hello! Let me be sure I understand you correctly...First of all...The steering wheel does not need to be removed to change the Ignition Switch...Just the steering column...It sounds like you have removed the steering column; Correct?...The Steering shaft is designed to collapse...When re-installing the Steering column you have to pull the shaft up and into the column to depress the shaft lock plate...Once you pull up the shaft (not easy) the column can be re-assembled...Gm saw fit not to include photos of steering column removal...See photo of Ignition and Dimmer switch...

You could get the special tool for that but you'd probably have to buy it instead of borrowing or renting. The other thing to do is get a piece of broomstick about 14" long and using that, press down on the plate. It's spring loaded. Then you can work the C clip out with a pair of screwdrivers. Be careful easing off the plate once the clip is removed because the plate will spring up at you. You can do the same thing to put it back on. Hope this helps.
