You need to remove the dash panel underneath the steering column. You will find the switch attached to the left side of the column with two 5/16" or 8mm screws. If you are sure it is the switch, you can go ahead and buy one so you know what it looks like, and know what to look for under the dash.

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod. NOTEOn column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch: * Remove the ignition switch wiring harness. * Unbolt it from its position. * Bolt the new switch into position. * Attach the witing harness.

If you want to change the SWITCH, it is on the steering column about 18 inches above the floor. If you want to change the lock cylinder you need to remove the steering wheel, then the lock plate then the turn signal switch then the key reminder switch {the two little copper contacts} and you will see a screw that has a different head that goes through the edge of the cylinder. Take the screw out then pull the lock cylinder out.

How do you replace ignition switch on 1986 camaro?

Remove the dress plate under the steering column. There is a clip there for the shift indicator, if you shift on the column. There are two nuts on studs, one on each side of the column, remove these nuts, and the steering column will drop down. The switch is on top of the column just lower then the fastening bracket. Unplug the wiring, remove the screws that retain the switch, install new one and adjust. Put everything back together.
