There is a small hole right under your ignition in the steering column housing. You can feel it it's right in line with the center of your key. There's a little pin that comes out of your ignition lock assy that snaps down into the hole in the housing preventing the lock assy from sliding back out. You need to turn the ignition to the on position and push up into the hole with a pick or a finishing nail or a paper clip or a pin (you get the idea) then the ignition should wiggle out. Sometime the end of this assembly is broken off and all you have to fish it out and buy a new ignition. sometimes the pushrod has come unhooked from the bottom end of the steering column. I had the latter happen and I could start it if I held the key on start and pushed the tilt all the way up. If the key just turns freely it's probably the tab. Good luck. y'huck y'huck

On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.

How do you replace an ignition tumbler on a Ford F-150?

I have an 89 f-150. There is a hole just underneath where you insert your key. Put your key in. Us a pin or something to press in the hole and the entire ignition switch will slide out. Beware that i found that tumblers weren't my problem. There is a metal rod that runs down the steering column that gets pushed as you turn the ignition. My rod was bent preventing the ignition from turning. Nothing wrong with my tumblers.
