Start by removing the steering wheel cover should be only a few screws and it separates in the middle you can now see the whole ignition switch. on the left side of the switch there are two wire harnessess that just unplug from the switch. don't damage these as they go right back on the new switch. Remove the steering wheel. Next remove the Mutifunction switch (turnsignal, lights etc) from the steering column. the igniton switch is held on with two breakaway bolts on each side. Basically these bolt heads break off as you tighten them down. not sure if this is an anti-theft device or Ford was being a bunch of asses when they designed it but there are only two ways to remove it. Option one is to CAREFULLY cut the bolts with a Dremmel saw. i don't recommend this because you can easily saw into the steering collumn and that is a whole new ball of wax. so option 2 is the best way i found yet. Just use a large flat chisel to knock it off. it takes some effort but you should be able to get the whole job done inside of an hour. Install the new switch, connect the wire harnesses to the new switch. i recommend trying to start the car BEFORE you tighten the breakaway bolts down all the way just in case. with that in mind finish by slowly tightening the bolts (a few turns each side) until they break off. Replace the multifunction switch and steering wheel (replace the old bolt with a new one because they are usually nylon coated) put the steering wheel cover back on and you are done!!

p.s. igniton switch cost me 70 dollars and new steering wheel bolt was 2 dollars and it only took me an hour and a half start to finish
