hey its on your steering column just past the edge or your dash its held on my 2 small bolts there is a steel bar (the plunger) coming down the column then makes a 90* turn into the switch it pops out with some presure and then the wiring for the switch its easy its two plugs that cannot be mixed up

**note** then searching for the switch it is usually green black or blue those were the 3 stock colors through the 80's it might just help you.
