Very hard to do. U must remove steering wheel, flasher and wiper controls and all the plastic covering around the ignition area. If u do attempt this, make sure u buy an original factory switch because the cheap after market ones wont last u a year. Good luck.
Why do u wanna change it? does it have to do with wanting to change the radio?

I have a 1997 V W golf and it does not have current in the coil. I already replaced the coil. Any sugestions?

Power to the coil is transmitted through an ignition module, called a power output stage. If you have powern there and none to the coil that's your problem.

Golf sometimes no power to starter motor

I would check the ignition switch. You can unplug the small wire at the starter, with a test light check and see if power is at the plug when you turn the key to the start postion. If there is power there, you may have a bad starter solenoid. I've had to replace a few on my VW, (86 Scirocco, 91 Jetta GLI)

No glow plug light on my 1997 v/w golf diesel will not start . can not find fuse link

Check and see if there is power at the glow plugs, with the ignition switched on and when the engine is cold.
If there is no power, check in-line fuse which is on the main lead to the glow plugs. Also check heater relay...on main fuse board.
