In the service manual, the Ignition lock/cylinder/switch are one assembly that doesn't come apart.
To remove the assembly, they say to remove the Steering column. This gives you access to the 2 'security' bolts reached only from the top. It states to drill these out. Then replace the ignition assy with a new one which comes with a new clamp and 2 one way (screw in only) security bolts.
This may not be the answer you want to hear, but this is what the Subaru Service manual states.
