A vandal stripped out the entire ignition: key cylinder, lockblock, etc. I'm trying to install the lockblock (the part sandwiched between thae key cylinder and the electrical ignition switch), but I can't get it past the steering column. I think the cylinder and/or steering column may be damaged, OR is it necessary to actually remove the steering column to insert the lockblock? You can barely see in the photo how the steering column protrudes into the cylinder.

That is one mess. My understanding is that you need to pull the steering column out to even remove it. I may be wrong but to replace it you would need to pull the steering column.
Here is Robots video on how to do it:

I believe you're right. After seeing Robot's video, I think I can do it. Thanks for the help!
