Remove the bezel from around the radio, this will expose two hidden screws. Remove these screws and about eight other screws to remove the lower dash panel below the steering wheel. Remove the two large bolts and drop down the steering column. The ignition switch is a white module on the top left of the steering column. Remove the connectors along the right and the two screws along the left. Lift up the switch to disengage the mechanical link to the key tumbler to remove. Good luck finding a new module, I couldn't locate one for mine, so I just reconditioned my old one using some contact cleaner.

If you're talking about the ingition cylinder, remove the steering wheel and turn signal switch. Remove the buzzer switch (white plug with a couple wires) located at about 4 o'clock by pulling straight out with a pair of needle nose pliers. This will expose the cylinder retaining screw. Remove the screw, and with the ignition switch in the locked position, pull the cylinder straight out...
