Ignition Switch Replacement.
There are a couple ways to do this, my approach was to find a way that didn't require drilling and removing the lock cylinder (see Bentley manual). The tricky part is the electrical portion of the ignition switch is held in by a small #0 phillips screw that is at an angle.. not easily accessible.
At the minimum, you need to remove the upper and lower plastic covers around the steering column. I removed the wheel, both stalks, lower dash panel and gauge cluster bezel to get the best view of the ignition switch.
The trick is to get a screw driver and bend it just enough to reach the screw. With a little patience, you can remove and replace the ignition switch without removing/drilling anything else. You will only be able to turn the screw (make contact) for a 1/4 of every rotation of the screwdriver, go slow and make sure not to damage the screw head.
