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.

If you are trying to remove the steering wheel to change the ignition switch, then you may not have to. The switch is on the steering column about 1/2 down towards the floor, and has a rod that runs from the key cylinder & locking part. You dont need to remove the steering wheel, but if you do so, I suggest you to take some help from some Paint and Body shop so that they can direct you to do it properly and safely.
Do let me know if it helped.
