If you are speaking of the "keyed" switch and not the electric column switch, it is not so bad, but I am a locksmith and my point of view may be a bit skewed. Question 1: Is the steering column round, if not ignore the following and call me @ 610.802.0802. If so you have it easy. You will need two "specific" tools available at your local autoparts store. A lockring compressor and a wheel puller. WITHOUT REMOVING THE COLUMN, follow the first few steps at this site I have listed (you will not have to unscrew the metal plate. It will be plastic and will pop right off.) When you get to the step where it says remove the key buzzer contacts, after removing this contact, this is where these instructions end for you. DO NOT FOLLOW ANY FURTHER. Behind this buzzer tab you will see a small set-screw. 7mm., 3/16, or Torx 15 or 20. Remove this screw and the cylinder will slide right out! Reverse the steps and you are done! Post: In the final picture, the one with the key buzzer, it shows three bolts that come out.....NOT FOR IGNITION REMOVAL, so do not do so!

You have an open question as to what you are asking. Are you referring to the key and tumbler assembly or the actual ignition switch meaning the electrical part? If you mean the key and tumbler then you need to have a locksmith do it or a repair shop as the key is coded for your car. If you are referring to the switch then in that case you will need special tools to remove it.

I suggest that you take it to the garage since you can deploy the air bag accidentally. 1990 with airbags? My 1990 does not have an airbag. I suggest removing the steering wheel. Then remove the turn signal assembly. There should be 1 or 2 screws holding the switch in place.
