I just replaced my backup light switch a couple of days ago. The thing only costs $8.95 but is a Mother to get to, actually you can save yourself alittle frustration by doing the job when the car is cold, I was in a hurry because it was getting late so the tranny was still very hot. You have about two and a half inches to manuever between the tranny and firewall and it sits just above the clutch slave cylinder. Getting it out is relatively easy, but the obstructed view makes it diff. to put back in. Use a short socket withOUT a driver to start threading it into place otherwise it's 'bout impossible. Then use a longer socket with the driver to tighten it down. Hope this helps...
