Ford Ignition switch replacement

Remove  the steering column  shroud you can access the small hole in the bottom of the key cylinder.When you put the key in and turn it to the "on" position push a small awl or similar tool into this hole which pushes the catch pin and you should be able to pull the cylinder assembly out.With the new cylinder in the same key position just push it back in and reassemble column. and it will be fitted.also for more help -
Using your current key, insert it into the ignition & turn the ignition to the "On" position but not the "Start" position. Do not start the truck.
Next, using a very small screwdriver (preferably a phillips head) insert it into the hole located under the ignition key cylinder on the steering column.
Pressing upwards with the small screwdriver or nail, you will press in the release button.
Firmly grip the key & ignition cylinder while pressing up on this release button & remove while in the "On" position.
Insert your new ignition cylinder with the key in it, into the "On" position until it snaps in place. Going in, the release button does not need to be depressed.
You now have a Cylinder key, that will not match your door lock keys
