What you have is called the lock plate for the steering wheel. Go to your favorite auto parts store and ask them for a lock plate hold down tool. It will be needed to depress the plate's spring, so the snap ring can be removed that is holding the lock plate onto the steering shaft.

The ignition switch is located inside the steering coulum below the key and tumbler.

Remove the screws on the side of the steering column. Remove the screws underneath the steering column and pull the bottom half of the column down. Slide a pin punch into the hole at the ignition tumbler assembly's bottom. Force the tumbler upwards and pull it out of the steering column.

When you say key tumbler, are you referring to thr ign key cylinder, door , glove box or trunk cylinder. All tricky, most difficult--steering col lock cylinder. Steering wheel, signal switch, must come off.

Pull your steering colum apart along with steering wheel and dash plastic, ignition swith is next to the key tumbler. Swap the parts.
