Have you tried getting a key from a dealer?

I don't know of a way to bypass the steering wheel turning lock without trashing the key lock cylinder or taking apart the steering column. To access the locking mechanism, you have to access the upper bracket in the steering column and remove it by drilling the heads of special bolts and removing them with a screw extractor.
