My boyfriend and I just did this in his Ford E150. You have to remove the steering wheel (several autopart stores rent steering wheel removers). From there you can see the ignition switch. The ignition switch cylinder is about 4 inches long, and projects into the steering column. All you have to do is press a small tab, then pull out the ignition switch. New ignition switches (with keys) are available at autopart stores. I suggest looking at a picture of the switch before attempting to find the tab yourself.


You do not have to remove steering wheel. on the bottom of the steering cover there will be three screw holes and a second smaller hole under the switch. with a pocket screw driver on similar device you can push the tab to release the switch.
