Ignition switch replacement

I have done this in the past, but cannot recall the procedure. I am replacing the ignition switch on a 1967 Chevelle Malibu. Is there any help out there?
Thanks in advance, Bill

Doc here,

67? Can't remember, wasn't that in the Dash not the column? IT been like forever...

If so, the Trim ring just unscrews from around the outside of the Cylinder, and should If I remember correctly, have a Backup nut you can back off.

Just pull the plug, remove the ring, and withdraw it from the rear of the Dash..

If It's a Column, you have to remove the wheel into the Signal bay, loosen the two Column Support bolts, and slightly lower it, then remove the hold down screw and Locking pin.. then with withdraw the switch...pull the plug, and reverse it to reinstall...

Some old cars had a tiny little hole right next to the keyhole. If so, you may have to remove the lock cylinder before you can get the nut off. Stick a thin wire (paper clip, etc.) into that hole & push inward while turning the key counter-clockwise past the ACC position to release the cylinder. Jiggling may be required.
