same thing happened to me. the pins inside fell apart. i had to have the car towed had a mechanic deal w/ it. he had to take off the steering wheel to remove lock and pins. so he installed a new lock and gave me a new key. costed me alot cause he spent alot of time doing it. It totally sucked.. especially because it happened on the 4th of july, so it's likely that thats what happened to you
In all seriousness, the steering column is really easy to take apart, just 2 screws to get the cover off, and everything is right there. It shouldn't be too bad. Also, there was a recall on the ignition switches for our cars, make sure you get that taken care of, it's free at any Ford dealer.
