Chevy ignition switchI just replaced the ignition switch on a 1995 1 ton and a 2001 1/2 ton, both were about the same, assuming your speaking of the mechanical part with the tumblers, that the key slides into. Anyway, you pull the plastic off the steering collumn, typically you have to work the shifter up or down if its an automatic in order to get the peices out. once you get to the inside, you just insert the key and turn it to on, you will want to disconnect the battery before taking these last steps. The should be a really small hole in the top of the housing that holds the ignition switch, with the key in either "on" or the "start" position, you should be able to push the "lock" down by putting something in the hole pushing down the spring loaded "lock" that keeps the ignition switch from sliding out. Then you should be able to slide it out and install the new one. Some times they are difficult, so be patient, try with the key in "start" position first (this why you need to unplug the battery). anyway, if you have anymore questions, post' em...-Jason
