Three screws hold the upper bearing housing to the lock housing. Remove the screws and separate the two housings to reveal the shaft-lock mechanism and ignition-switch gear. A pin through the steering shaft (covered by a thin sheetmetal sleeve) retaining the lock plate must be removed. Chrysler recommends a special pressing tool to remove the pin. With the column out of the car, a drift is fine as long as the shaft is well supported from behind, as shown.
