It is in the steering column, right behind the lock cylinder. (where you put the key in to start) You have to take the molding off of the lower column. Loosen four bolts to drop the clomn down. Romove lock cylinder. Undo wiring harness to ignition switch. Remove the two screws mounting swith and replace. The switch should come pre set to on position. Wich the lock cylinder has to be lined up to in order to remove it. Note: the two screws that hold the ignition switch may look like rivets, but they are threaded. Take a pair of needle nose vice grips to remove them. The new switch should come with a pair of hex countersunk screws. This will make it esier to replace again if ncessary. Good luck.

The 1991 Mercury Sable ignition switch is held in place with a retaining ring. Loosen the retaining ring. Pull the ignition switch out. Remove the wiring harness from the rear of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install the new ignition switch.

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod. NOTEOn column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch: * Remove the ignition switch wiring harness. * Unbolt it from its position. * Bolt the new switch into position. * Attach the witing harness.

Remove the retaining ring at the top of your 1991 Acura Legend ignition switch. The ignition switch cylinder will slide out. Remove the wiring harness from the end of the ignition cylinder. Reverse the process to install your new ignition switch cylinder.

Ok so you have to go where the ignition switch is at on the 1991 cougar. Next, You have to take the old one out. Last, you have to put the new one in.

The entire ignition switch assembly will unholy from the steering column. The key is required to remove the cylinder from the switch.

do you want to know how to replace the ignition switch, which is not visible, and is the electrical part lower down on the column, or do you want to know how to replace the ignition lock cylinder, where you put the key in? *another thing to remember is that there was a recall on that part of an 89 f150. you can get it fixed for free at any ford dealership.

There are two - the one that you turn with the key - and the one on top of the column under the dash/ the one you put your key in- the steering wheel has to come off. The one that the key switch operates- you need to drop the column down to replace

I don't know how to change the ignition switch but I have some advice. Don't screw with the ignition switch, buy the whole steering column. It will be cheaper and easier to change.

Most major parts houses would have the ignition switch. Any year between 1991 and 1996 will fit it.

right thar where you put the key in it. No, that is the key cylinder. The ignition switch is located on the steering wheel column below the insulator panels.

Go to a U-Pick junk yard and practice on the cars there until you get it right. Then buy the best of the locks you fiddled with.

get a standard paper clip and straighten one fold so you have a handle and a small length of wire. disconnect the positive battery terminal, turn the ignition to the "on position", on the underside of the ignition switch there is a small pin. use the paperclip to push this up into the steering column and gently wiggle and pull the ignition assembly away from the steering coulmn. good luck
