Question: Saab wont turn on, needs to be pushed to start.

Hi I currently own a 1990 Saab 900 Turbo 5-Speed Manual Transmission car. Its in pretty good shape, except that the ignition is broken so in order to turn it on, I have to push the car, pop the clutch, and go from there. I bought a new ignition switch, but I have no idea how to replace it, the car came without a manual.

THanks
