Ignition switch

I have a 1989 Ford Ranger 2.3L 5speed and I can't find any information on how to replace the ignition switch or where the ignition switch is exactly. Is it the plug in switch or is it in the actual key cylinder? Can anyone give me more insight?

Ignition switch is under the steering column above brake pedal.
It is a slider switch.

Key switch on the steering column is connected to the ignition switch with a long bar/rod.
When you turn the key the bar moves and slides the ignition switch into it various positions:

If key is hard to turn or doesn't always turn when key is inserted, it is most likely the key cylinder is failing or your key is too worn down to push pins inside into position.

For ignition switch itself, Google: ford ranger ignition switch replacement

Most years are the same and most manufacturers as well, so outside of the specific parts involved any "how-to" will be helpful
