Hi, your ignition switch is mounted to the steering column just below the knee bolster by 2 5/16in bolts. First remove the 2 connectors from the switch, then the bolts. The actuating rod is slid into the side of the switch and extends up the column to the lever of the key barrel. Carefully pull the rod from the side of the switch. Slide the actuating rod into the new switch and bolt it on, then plug in the connectors. I have pasted a picture of the switch below. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Remove the column shroud halves.
Remove the column-to-dash attaching bolts and slowly lower the steering column, making sure that it is supported.
Remove the multi function switch if necessary.
Remove the key alarm switch, if equipped by gently prying the alarm switch retaining clip with a small screwdriver. Rotate the alarm switch 1?4 in. turn and remove.
WARNING Extreme care is necessary to prevent damage to the collapsible column.
Make sure that the switch is in the Lock position. If the lock cylinder is out, pull the switch rod up to the stop, then go down one detent.
Disconnect the actuating rod from the switch.
Remove the two screws and the switch.
Before installation, make sure the switch is in the Lock position.
Attach the actuating rod to the switch.
Install the switch using the original screws. Tighten the screws to 12 inch. lbs. (1.4 Nm).
Install the key alarm switch, if equipped . Make sure the retaining clip is parallel to the lock cylinder. Rotate the alarm switch 1?4 in. turn until locked in place.
Install the multi function switch if removed.
CAUTION Use of screws that are too long could prevent the column from collapsing on impact.
Replace the column. Tighten the nuts to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm); the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
Install the column shroud halves.

Take off the cover underneath the dash. Push the rubber boot down at the very bottom (Sometimes you have to cut them a little to move them down far enough) Should be an 11mm bolt down there someplace. then disconnect everything and take off the other bolts should be 13s or 15s going straight up. then just yank it out to separate it from the rack and it should come right out.
