Autozone will loan you a tool that will push the plate down.....Makes it a snap (pun intended) to get the ring off.

I made my own tool out of a piece of 2" square steel tubing. Cut it into a U shape, drilled a hole in the top of the U so the steering column stub fits thru, then just use the steering column nut to compress the spring.
