Question about 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
There are different releases for some designs. Column cover needs to be removed on side of switch, phillips heads and some plastic snaps make it that complete cover has to be out of way. There is pin release usually on bottom of lock tumbler, some need paper clip to be pushed inside for key tumbler to be released. Some have small spring loaded button to be pressed externally.
The housing for switch to attach to column can be adjustable with slots that are important. Scratch position marks on column to allow for remount of new switch in same position. The timing (up or down) is dependent on how everything aligns with gearshift lockouts like starter working in Park or Neutral and showing proper gear. These adjustments are a pain and can be avoided by scratching a mark on the column before removing the old part. Some parts do not have the slotted style and fit in a fixed hole for the bolts to attach it.
Finally, be careful with the electric connectors so you do not break a tab.
