The first thing you need to do is remove the battery cables from the terminals. The battery is under other equipment such as the air filter and other components.
You have to remove the drivers' side wheel (rediculous I know) and then remove the square panel on the wheel well liner (on the front side of the wheel well...towards the headlights) There is a small square panel that is too be removed. the battery slides out directly in to the wheel well.

The battery is accessible without removing the left front wheel and tire assembly..

Verify that the ignition switch and all accessories are OFF.
Turn the steering wheel to the full left position.
Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable remote terminal from the remote battery post.

Remove battery splash shield. Refer to the Body section of the service manual for the procedure.
Disconnect the heater blanket cord, if equipped.
Remove the short bolt from the battery hold down and remove the hold down (Battery Location).
Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables from the battery.
Slide the battery toward rear of vehicle and lift out of the battery tray.
Remove battery from vehicle.

Changed motor car wont charge found 4 broken wires in harness 2 in ground repared them still wont charge was told pcm needs to be replaced and programmed. what about pigtail on alternator being bad

Yes, repair the alternator wire. The pcm does not control alternator output, it only uses and monitors it. I don't know if it is a problem, but maybe from the bad wiring you found may have affected it. Don't know who told you to replace the pcm, but think I'd get a second...well, a third opinion.
Sorry I can't help you more, good luck.

Need to replace the driver's side glass mirror with turn signals

Those are usually sold as a one piece unit. I normally don't replace just the glass. Open the door panel up and you should see the wiring and 2 to 3 nuts holding the studs for that housing din place. remove those and remove the housing. As far as opening the housing I don't even think you can.

How to replace ignition switch in 1981 Ford F-150 when you don't have the keys

You don't need to replace the switch,just the lock cylinder.You gotta pull the steering wheel,turn signal switch,etc to get at the cylinder(I haven't done this on a Ford product,but most cylinders have some kind of clip or bolt retaining them)Some auto parts stores used to have replacement cylinders,don't know if this is still the case)
