Be glad an amateur who didn't know what he was doing is who did it, rather than a pro. At least you still have the car.

I guess the thieves didn't know about the PATS system...good thing, years ago my 94 GT was stolen in Phoenix before Ford had that built into the key

Thanks for the link. And im glad they didn't get the car.
are these hard to replace? I've never had to do one before.

It's tricky to remove. But looks like the black plastic piece is only missing. so you can't put the key in and turn it? If i remember right, you have to put the key in, turn it forward, at the bottom in the column is a hole you have to put something in there to release and then it can be pulled out so a new one can go in. Just play with it and see if you can get it out.
