    Where to? should be straight forward, just 4 wires I think. are you going to use a generic one from a parts store?

    Easy, pull the plactic cover off of the steering column (4 screws I think) and then undo the ignition switch (one screw)... put the new one in, swap the plugs... easy as that (20 mins. tops)...

    Don't use a cheap aftermarket one... the Toyota ones last forever and keep your harness clean...
