You need to remove the steering wheel to access the ignition switch. Once it is off, you will have access to the switch.

Right click on the word 'Thumb' in my post above and select "Save Link As" and save it to a location that you can find. Then change the extension from large. Jpg to large. Pdf. Then open it in Acrobat.
