I agree with P. Baril's comment. I too, have disassembled the lock unit and found that there is a small 1/2 pin that springs up to lock the steering wheel. This is no biggie.

For all others who may have occassional problems with the ignition key (binding while turning the key):
It could be that the small tabs in the barrel may be slightly bent. Try not to force the turning of the key, or else, you will be stuck one day. A suggestion is that you should disassemble the ignition barrel and take it to a locksmith to have the tabs replaced. It will only cost a few dollars for the new tabs. It sure beats being stuck one day because the key will no longer turn. Then, it will be a lot more difficult to disassemble the barrel.
