Need to know make and model in order to answer this. On some, you simply use a key to remove the panel which the switch is mounted to, unplug the wires from the back of the switch, use a small pick to remove the tumbler from the housing, pop a new housing into the tumbler, and put it back in the opposite of how you took it out.

How do you remove the ignition key switch on a 1998 Chevrolet truck?

Removing the ignition key switch from a 1998 Chevrolet truck is a relatively straightforward process. Before beginning it is important to make sure that the truck is off and the battery has been disconnected. To begin you will need to remove the steering wheel by first removing the center wheel nut with a 12" socket and wrench. You should then use a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel. Once the wheel is removed the ignition key switch will be visible in the center of the steering wheel. To remove the ignition key switch you will need to remove the retaining clip and then unscrew the bolts securing the switch in place. After the bolts have been removed the switch can be removed and replaced with the new one.
