I did this on an Eddie Bauer Bronco last weekend. It is not hard at all to do if you have the correct tools.
Step One: remove the small bolts from the back of the steering wheel that holds the padded part on the front of the steering wheel and pop out the switch key tumbler. The tumbler has a small hole on the bottom that has a pin that you push in to get it out.
Step two: Remove the large nut from the center of the steering column.
Step three: Remove the steering wheel. A steering wheel puller is best for this, but you can get it off without a puller. Leave the nut on the steering column flush with the end of the column. Do not let any threads show through the nut. Strike the nut on the end of the shaft with a hammer. You can then grasp the steering wheel with both hands and with a little pressure you can pull it off. When the steering wheel comes loose it will pop up against the nut. Finish taking it off.
Step four: After removing the steering wheel, you will see the turn signal and horn assembly. Remove the small bolts from the turn signal assembly and pull it straight toward you. You will have to reach below the steering and pull some wire toward you to give you some space
Step five; You can not pull the turn signal lever out of the bottom of the assembly. Slide it through the column to the right.
Step six: remove the horn assembly. Note: Be sure that you see where the horn contactors are so you get them in the right place when you replace the steering wheel.
Step seven: Drive the pin out of the ignition switch actuator that holds the switch linkage rod. You can do this by using a small drill bit and hammer. Be very careful not to drop the pin.
Step eight: Remove both pieces of the broken actuator. The piece that is down inside the steering column can be removed by drilling a small hole in it and driving a small screwdriver in it. Note: you have to lift up on it to get it out.
Step Nine: You will have to remove the tilt steering assembly in order to get the new actuator in place. For this you will have to have a pivot pin puller. This can be purchased at NAPA Auto Parts. Other places don't have it. You can get them out without a puller, but if you mess these up, they are extremely expensive to purchase.
Step Ten: Put the new actuator in place and reverse the above steps.
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.
In most cases you will need to replace the turn signal switch on the steering wheel for your 1983 Chevy Caprice Classic rather than fixing it. To replace it, remove the horn pad and then use a steering wheel puller and compressor to remove the steering column. You will then remove the signal along with the wiring harness and bus fuses. Replace the signal and wiring and then replace the steering column itself.
in order to replace the "actuator switch" if you mean the soleniod you need to find the soleniod either on the passenger side firewall or on the passenger side inner fender, there is 2 bolts holding it , first disconnect the battery, then remove the wires from each side carefully remembering where they go, i like to wire tie them together to be sure. Then i remove the old soleniod and replace in with a new one. If it isn't the soleniod and your talking about the ignition cylinder, then you turn the key to acc. and push the lock pin in which is located on the underside of the steering column, once the pin is pushed in the cylinder should slide out, then insert the new cylinder.
