Question Ignition

I must be dumb, I have been to every e-how page and they all state to replace the ignition simply insert key and find the 1/8" hole and push the shaft out. On my 2008 fx4 f250 looks like there is a cover all around the ignition. I need to replace the ignition cylinder/switch due to key getting stuck and at times will not turn. Any help would be appreciated

Does anyone know if this refers also to 2008 found it in another post on a 2001 super duty. Just trying to find out how to change my ignition switch. Kind regards Mike C

Remove lower dash panel to access fuse box.
In my truck 01, 7.3 CC Lariat, it was fuse #19. Some report fuse #45. Check fuse to see if blown.

With #2 phillips, remove three column cover screws from the bottom of the column to remove the plastic covers.

With top/bottom covers loose, move bottom cover to the side to view small stainless detent locking ball on the bottom of the ignition housing.

Note: When removing ignition, be careful of the tiny contact and wire for the key chime. It's located on the bottom of the ignition housing. It's a small black keyed insulator, with contact tab.

Put the key in the ignition. Press the stainless detent ball with the awl (or #1 phillips). While depressed, turn the key forward to the 'on' position and slide ignition out of the column. This is where you need to be gentle- be careful of the key chime contact (and again when re-installing).
