isses with the key

hey guys... i have a ef 1994 xr6.ive had it for like 8 months... i got a problem with the key.. i click it to the "start" mode and when i let go it misses the "on" mode and turn the car off?!? i worked out that i gotta be like super careful and super slow when it comes to turning on my car, and it stays in, which is bloody anoying, esp if it takes me 5 to 10 mins to start the damn thing lol

anyway i ripped off the steeringcover and checked out what the problem would be... for starters its not the key nor the ingnition lock/starter, but from what i have gathered it seem to be falling apart at the back of the steering coloum locking device( what ever the key lock goes onto). i found that there was a loose ball bearing inside, tryied fixed it but it was only a quick fix i guess.. and now its playing up again
i wanna know is it possible to replace it urself or do i have to spend big money to fix it.
any ideas or anyone have some info on this...??
