If your ignition switch is column mounted (on your steering column), you may be able to find an access hole to a small pin on the underside of the lock cylender. To remove, insert key into keyhole and push up on pin with a small screwdriver. Ta Da! If your unfortunate enough to have no hole on the underside of the column, you then need to remove the Airbag, steering wheel, clock spring, shifter and then you mave have access to a Torx or other style screw holding the backside of the switch, along with an assortment of wires to disconnect.

I had the Suby dealer in Auburn WA fix mine, the unit is held in place with 2 long bolts. The metal brackets are welded together and the electrical connections have to be soldered to the new Ignition switch. Cost-$289 or so.

The manual running light switch may be "on". It is located on top of the steering column, near the dashboard guages, in a 1998 Legacy. The switch operates the lights without requiring the ignition switch to be on.

The ignition switch is one unit and you replace the entire thing. Do not confuse the ignition switch with the key lock tumbler. They are two different things.

Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out and you can remove the wiring harness from the end of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install your new ignition switch.
