The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

Getting to the ignition switch housing is going to be a task in itself however once you get there you will need to drill a small hole into the houseing of the ignition switch small enough to push a retaining clip down in order to remove the ignition (key). Drilling the hole in the right place is critical, you have to measure approximately 1/4" back from the edge of the lock from the top of the off position (when you remove the key), now measure about 3/16" left of that mark and make a mark, this will be where you will drill a 1/16" hole, becareful not to go deeper than an 1/8" (tip: just drill slowley pull back and check to see if you've got past the housing.
Now look down the cylinder (where you removed the lock from) and you will see a retaining screw which holds the ignition switch, unscrew it and replace. Now put it all back together again.
