    You have to remove the wheel (presumably no air bag on yours?), remove the upper and lower cowls and then remove the column switches. Then you will encounter a splined bush that is pressed onto the column with a spring below, this bush has to be extracted with a puller. Then you can remove the steering column upper bearing housing which is also the ignition lock, switch and barrel housing. The bearing is not replaceable separately so this will mean a new housing, the bush on the shaft never wears but it would be good to fit a new one anyway. The housing contains the lock barrel and the ignition switch, I suggest you fit a new ignition switch whilst you are in there. You will have to remove the lock barrel from the housing and this requires some careful drilling in a very exact position, this is shown in the Haynes manual I think. I suggest you only buy the parts genuine, pattern lock housings are rubbish in my experience as are the 6N type ignition switches.
