Default Key ignition switch removal?

My key ignition switch is starting to go bad and I want to remove it, but there seems to be no bolts were it hold to the steering colum. Has somebody outthere already changed this? How do I remove the old one?
It's a 1994 civic hatchback 5 speed.

Do you want to replace the key lock cylinder or the electrical switch?

i think you have to drill the bolts out, as they are "tamper proof" bolts. I almost attempted this before because my key looks worn

Cut slits into them with a dremel and remove with a screw driver.

You won't need to do that if it's just the switch that's bad.
