Re: replace ignition switch
Take the shroud cover (plastic around column) off. Where the key goes in at the top it should be completely covered by metal. Where the key was is at the top measure 1/2 inch in take a small punch and punch a hole through the metal very thin metal there will be a retaining spring under the push down on it and pull the switch out

Remove the electrical plug that is plugged into the fuse box which powers the ignition switch. Remove the two bolts holding the ignition switch in place. Some Honda
vehicles have blank head bolts or round head bolts. In this case, you
will need to cut a groove into the center of the bolt head with a dremel
and use a flat tip screwdriver to remove the bolt. Or you can try
removing the bolt using a center punch and a hammer to turn the screw
bolt counterclockwise. Pull the ignition switch out of the steering column and install the new switch. Installation is the reverse of removal.

You don't need to remove the housing. The switch mechanism can be removed and replaced with a new one. With the key in the ignition in the lock position, there is a button in the face of the housing that you depress and the switch slides out. Slide in the new switch. Learned this the hard way. The local garage replaced the whole unit in the corolla after several hours work and a lot swearing. They gave me the old unit when I picked up the car and after a few minutes of studying it I discovered that it was quite simple to change. Good luck.
