Remove the screws removed from the trim panels that surround the steering column. Put the key in the ignition switch and wiggle the steering wheel to get the ignition to turn into the ACC position, with the key in the ACC position there is a pin that needs to be depressed in the barrel that surrounds the ignition switch housing that allows the ignition switch to be pulled outward. If the ignition switch can't be put in the ACC position a garage is your best option to get the ignition switch fitted as the ignition switch is located with anti-theft hardware to prevent theft and are difficult to remove.
