First you have to remove the panel from the bottom of the dash board to be able to get to the steering column bolts. Then, disconnect all of the wiring harnesses from the steering column. After this, go underneath the truck and disconnect the shifter linkage from the transmission. You can then remove the four bolts that hold the column up. Then, carefully slide the column out. Once the shifter linkage is against the firewall, rotate the column until you can pull the linkage through the opening in the firewall.

Remove the steering wheel. (you will need a steering wheel puller) Remove the turn signal switch. It is not necessary to completely remove the switch from the column. Pull the switch rearward far enough to slip it over the end of the shaft, but do not pull the harness out of the column. Turn the lock to Run. If necessary, remove the ignition key. If equipped, remove the buzzer switch assembly. Remove the lock retaining screw and remove the lock cylinder.

You need a special tool for the telesopic steering column. It use to be available only to dealers, but I'm sure you can rent one these days.

In a 1987 it's under the steering column, to the left. Hope it's the same for the 1988.

Under the dash; on or very near the steering column.

The switch is located on the left side of the steering column. You have to remove the panel underneath the dash to access it. There will be two screws holding it on.

First you must remove the horn pad, then check to see if the large mount nut is loose. If it is tight, probably a column bearinmg problem.

The turn signal flasher on the 1988 model is located on top of the steering column, about midway from the floor. It is held in a small spring clip. To access it, remove the courtesy panel beneath the steering wheel and feel along the top side of the column. It may in the same place on the 1995.

Replacing the ignition switch actuator on a 1988 Ford f150 is a complicated and multi-step process. First, remove the necessary panels to gain access to the steering column. Second, remove the screws and bolts holding the steering column to the dash. Third, locate the ignition switch and remove the actuator rod, replacing it with a new one. Re-attach everything to the dash and replace the panels. If this does not work, or seems too confusing, it may be in one's best interest to seek out a professional mechanic.
