Ok. You don't need to remove the steering wheel, you only need to remove the tilt lever, and any screws in the lower trim. Here are the directions. A small screwdriver will release the switch.

Removal Procedure

  1. Insert a small screwdriver into the lock cylinder housing to release the tabs on the ignition switch.
  2. Pull the ignition switch out of the lock cylinder housing.
  3. Disconnect the connector from the ignition switch.
  4. The timing of the switch is VERY important. When you take the old switch out, compare the position of the gear and set the new one. Good luck.
