Are you talking about the key switch or the switch itself. The place where you put the key in is not the switch, The switch is farther down on the column towards the firewall. That can be replaced easy, the switch itself will be a little more difficult as sometimes you have to remove the steering wheel and other parts. All the labor is set to a fixed rate and can run as high as $200.00 and more.
