Unhappy Fiat punto (2000) Help on removing the key ignition barrel!!

Hi I have had my fiat punto 1.2 sporting (2000) for less than 4 months and I have got the dreaded red steering wheel light on the dash!!

I have already stripped the steering column out but I am finding it difficulty to remove the ignition key barrel? Can it be done? Any ideas would be much appreciated?


Cheers

my replacement steering column came with a barrel holder already attached

the actual barrel is removed by putting the key in, turning it to the on position and pressing the release button in with a screwdriver and pulling the barrel outwards

Ok I found the release button, however, when I put in new barrel I can't get the code light to go away on the dash, no matter where I put the old key, any ideas?
