The Ford Focus MK3 steering wheel doesn't lock.I recently took the steering column off of my car and now wheel does not lock. What is responsible for locking the wheel? When I was reassembling it, i thought it went back together the exact way it came off but apparently something isnt right.

From the factory service manual for the 2012-2013 Ford Focus.Steering Column
Steering Column Overview
The steering column system consists of the following components:
Deployable steering column
Upper and lower steering column shrouds
Steering column switches
The steering column is the mechanical linkage between the steering wheel and the steering gear. The steering wheel is mounted to a shaft which passes through the center of the steering column. The shaft is centered by roller ball bearings within the steering column. The steering column shaft then connects the steering column to the steering gear. The steering column shaft utilizes U-joint type couplings.
