I'm sorry, I don't personally, but hopefully someone with an All-Data subscription can give you more information. We don't currently have a How-To on this procedure. We have lots of stuff for the ignition lock cylinder, but nothing for the ignition switch. If you can make one, provide pics, etc, of your experience, that would help. It shouldn't be too hard. The ignition switch is located on the top of the steering column just past the dash towards the floor. In the past I've had to drop the bolts that hold the steering column in place, unplug the switch, unbolt the switch, and then put it all back together. You may want to unplug the switch first, then drop the column to remove to prevent stressing the connector. OF course, inspect everything for signs of wiring damage, etc.
Be eclectic.

Moderating everything now, let me know if I can help.
