THe key is stuck in the ignition tumblers, I have taken that area apart 
to give me room to separate the lock assembly from the steering column 
I just cannot get the lock assembly  all the way out of the steering 
column  mount. It is as though the steering wheel lock is not quite 
pulled all the way back .
Before I destroyed everything taking it apart the the steering column 
was unlocked with the key in any position.
The sad part is it is probably something really simple in what is 
preventing me from getting it apart and I just cannot see it.
Yes I have a Bentley's. I would assume that when it is a far apart as I 
have it, that lock assembly should just come out.
