How to disable the steering wheel lock on a race car.
On our Toyota Celica we went to the trouble to drill out the security screws and remove the lock cylinder from the steering column. Then I used a cut off wheel to shorten the locking pin until it no longer engaged the shaft.
On our Sentra Race car, however I tried a tip I overheard somewhere. I drilled a 3/8 hole in the cover on the bottom of the lock pin chamber. Something fell out. A spring maybe. After that the lock pin no longer engages when the key is removed. This was much simpler and quicker than removing the cylinder from the column.
On my Rally Jeep, I simply removed the lock plate. However this required removing the steering wheel and using a lock plate removal tool. The Sentra was by far the easiest solution to disabling the steering wheel lock.
