I have a 1995 Ford F-150 and I need to change the ignition switch. Is this hard to do?

IGNITION SWITCH
Removal
Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove steering column shroud and lower column. Unplug switch connector. Remove retaining nuts or screws. Lift switch vertically to disengage actuator. Remove switch.
Installation
With lock cylinder and switch in LOCK position, position ignition switch onto column and actuator rod. New ignition switches come positioned in LOCK position with shipping pin in side of switch. Position switch on column, and install, leaving retaining nuts loose.
Move switch up and down along column to locate mid position of rod lash. Tighten retaining nuts to 40-63 INCH lbs. (4.5-7.1 N.M). Remove shipping pin from side of ignition switch. Connect battery cable. Check for proper starter operation in Park and Neutral. Check all switch positions for proper operation.
