There were two different styles. The older style, with the cruise control switches on the signal lever, can be identified by a 1/8" diameter black wire leaving the base of the lever, and going into the column. That stalk must be pulled straight out, but don't pull it more than an inch or it could rip the wire.
The steering wheel must be removed along with the lock plate. Three screws hold the switch to the steering column. You will also have a flat wiring harness that must be pulled through a plastic tube through the column. Tie a wire to the connector and pull it up through the tube, then you can use that wire to pull the new harness down.
The newer style switch has a large body that is held on with two screws. You will have to remove the plastic cover around that part of the column to get to the screws. The electrical connector attaches to the back of the switch. This is the one that has the little lever that pops out when you turn the signals on.
