REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



The Dasher and Quantum back-up light switch is screwed into the rear of the gear shift housing above the shift lever. The Fox back-up light switch is screwed into the rear of the transaxle housing. The Jetta back-up light switch is screwed into the top of the transaxle case to the left of the shift linkage.

The back-up light switch on the Rabbit, Scirocco and Cabriolet is mounted in one of three positions: screwed into the front face of the transaxle beside the oil filler plug, screwed into the top of the transaxle case to the left of the shift linkage, or mounted as a microswitch on top of the transaxle with a lever that is activated by the external shift linkage.

ADJUSTMENT



The Rabbit and Scirocco microswitch can be adjusted by bending the bracket. No other back-up light switch can be adjusted.
