Remove the steering shaft nut and pull off the steering hub. A steering wheel puller may be required. Use caution as the steering hub may pop loose. Next, remove the two "torx head" screws behind the steering hub that hold the two plastic covers together.

Use a flat head screwdriver to make sure the new switch is good (reconnect battery and turn the switch in either direction as if to turn the vehicle on then start then off. It should turn smoothly and only kick back to the on position. After testing the new switch, disconnect the battery again. Take note of the tab on the case of the switch.
