I have to take all the parts off an 05 srt-4 column and transfer them to another unit...My column was bent in an accident and needs to be replaced...I have the wheel, clockspring, and multifunction switch removed. How does the ignition switch and the metal unit that holds it all together come apart? There are some safety torx screws, large and small, after removing these does it slide off the column from the front? Do you need the key to remove the switch...thanks

switch.
(5) Remove ignition switch mounting screw (Fig.
17) with a #10 Torxt bit.
(6) Depress retaining tabs (Fig. 18) and pull ignition
switch from steering column.
INSTALLATION
(1) Ensure the ignition switch is in the RUN position
and the actuator shaft in the lock housing is in
the RUN position.
(2) Carefully install the ignition switch. The
switch will snap over the retaining tabs (Fig. 19).
Install mounting screw (Fig. 17).
(3) Install electrical connectors to ignition switch.

(1) Disconnect negative cable from battery.
(2) Place key cylinder in RUN position. Through
the hole in the lower shroud, depress lock cylinder
retaining tab and remove key cylinder.
INSTALLATION
(1) Install key in lock cylinder. Turn key to RUN
position (retaining tab on lock cylinder can be
depressed).
(2) The shaft at the end of the lock cylinder aligns
with the socket in the end of the housing. To align
the socket with the lock cylinder, ensure the socket is
in the RUN position (Fig. 21).
(3) Align the lock cylinder with the grooves in the
housing. Slide the lock cylinder into the housing
until the tab sticks through the opening in the housing.
(4) Turn the key to the OFF position. Remove the
key.
(5) Connect negative cable to battery.

Where is the retaining tab to depress so that the lock cylinder can be removed?
