Q: switch lock behind ignition on 1992 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup

There is a lever behind the ignition on my steering column that you must press down on before being able to turn the ignition to the OFF position. This lever broke on my vehicle and it will no longer allow me to turn the key into the off position, keeping it on constantly. I attempted to take apart the steering column to get behind the ignition to just take the entire lever part off, however this process seems to be a little more than my engineering know-how. Is there anyway to fix this myself? I need as much help as I can get... being a college student and all, money isn't necessarily a luxury I have. Thanks for your help!
