If the steering lock is in the O position (the key cylinder ) then the lock cannot be removed. The key must be turned to the first click , if this cannot be done and the steering lick needs removed it will to be cut off from under the dash. The steering lock had a anti theft feature to where if the key cylinder is removed to try to steal the car the lock will ratchet out and permanently lock the column. So if there is a key issue then the whole assembly must be cut off as close to the column to be able to press in the locking pin to remove it.
