Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your 1996 Mercury Tracer ignition switch. The ignition lock cylinder will slide out. Remove the wiring harness from the end of the cylinder. Reverse the process to install your new ignition lock cylinder.

==This operation requires special tools.== Remove the steering wheel, and tilt assembly, you can then see a black screw above the rounded area for the lock cylinder, remove this screw and the cylinder will then pull out.

The Ignition Control Module on a 1996 Ford Thunderbird 4.6 is located inside the EFI or Electronic Fuel Injector. The EFI is the carburetor. Look for a cord that has a connector that resembles an HD Cable.

According to the Chilton Corsica/Beretta 1988-1996 Manual, there are 21 steps to removing the ignition cylinder (and another 15 - 20 to reinstall it). Not that I don't want to past them all here, but you should get a manual... they're handy to have for any repairs.
