REPLACEMENT & ADJUSTMENT
See Figure 1
Remove the console trim from the console.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the switch.
Remove the 2 attaching screws from the switch and remove the switch.
Fig. 1: Neutral start/back-up light switch
To install a new switch:
Place the switch onto the transmission control shifter and loosely install the attaching screws. Position the transmission control shifter assembly in the N notch in the detent plate.
Assemble the switch to the transmission control shifter assembly by inserting the carrier tang into the hole in the shifter lever.
Install the attaching screws and tighten.
Move the transmission control shifter assembly out of N position. This will shear the switch internal plastic pin.
To install the original switch:
Rotate the switch on the shifter assembly to align the service adjustment hole with the carrier tang hole. Insert a 3/32 in. (2.38mm) diameter gauge pin to a depth of 9/16 in. (15mm) and tighten attaching screws.
Remove the gauge pin.
Connect the electrical connector to the switch.
Install the console trim to the console.
The safety neutral switch is located in the front seating area, on the driver side, under the dash, above the clutch pedal, mounted on the pedal support bracket.
If you want to know what it looks like, go to autozone and ask them to let you look at it. Though, I am assuming that you already have this at hand and already know what it looks like.
NO, that's incorrect. In this vehicle the Neutral switch in located in the console as shown in the first set of instruction.
Here's another picture and a different set of instructions.
It's #817 in the image.
You just proved me right. What you are showing is an automatic transmission and its the same picture as the first post(pretty much). He has a manual transmission.
Let me explain something to everybody.
Neutral safety switches are used on automatic transmissions only!!!!!!!
Manual transmissions use a clutch switch. I assumed all "mechanics" would know that.
Yes, I do know that. But since he mentioned that it is a manual transmission, I automatically starting thinking of where it was, rather then what the proper name is.
To the customer
If it's truly a clutch switch that your looking for instead of a neutral switch, it's mounted to a bracket on the pedal cluster near the floorboard.
Thats exactly what I just said. You just provided a picture to my instructions.
I don't know what you mean by "if it works".
You asked for the location of something that didn't exist. I've given you what I have to assume your looking for.
You were asking for something that didn't exist
Here is your questionn the way it was orifinally asked
Sir, I would have no reason to question what you asked. A neutral safety switch is a very common part, but only on an automatic transmission. You never said it was a standard in your first question. What you were actually looking for was something entirely different. Certified or not, we can't know what's going through someone else mind.
I did give you a picture and everything once I figured out what you were looking for.
