How to replace an ignition switch on a 1996 Nissan maxima?
Take the covers off from behind the steering wheel upper and lower, Take the knee covers off and the backing plate. If you look at where the key goes and follow that cylinder, on the other end you will see the switch, it's attached by two screws, very easy to remove, and has a small harness you need to detach from the wires it connects to. Disconnect your battery!!!!
