to change this ignition switch you need to remove the 3 covers around the upper steering column
the upper will just unsnap off if you pull up on it by hand
then there is 3 screws up from the bottom covers to remove them
once the covers are off the ignition switch is located on the left side of the upper steering column just visually look at the new switch and you will see the old one on your column and unplug it electrically then the 2 screws holding the switch in and it will come out
