I did this on a '93 9000 recently by just removing the upper and lower plastic covers and then there is a couple of allen type set-screws that secure the switch assembly to the steering column. Bad ignition switches are a fairly common problem on 9000s. -Fred --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com).
