There should be a button inside the column that you push in, or a bolt to remove, been awhile since I did one. You may need to have the key in the lock cylinder and turn the lock cylinder.

You'll need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate removal tool. Remove the steering wheel and the lock plate. There should be a button to push or screw to remove to take out the cylinder.

Need to open up the steering column on 1983 El Camino for igniti


Saw, It sounds like the accuator rod from the ignition lock cylinder to the ignition switch is broken or disconnected.
If you look near the base of the steering column you wll see the ignition switch mounted to the steering column. As you turn the key you should see the rod move up and down, if not, you will have to disassemble to figure out why.
Good luck, let me know what you find.
Regards,

Ignition Switch grey_line.gif Inspect | Test | Replace The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

Steering wheel is locked up and cannot turn key in ignition.


With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

Put the Key in the ignition and turn the key. It should disengage the steering lock and you should be able to pull it out. Make sure you unplug the switch from the back.
