Good afternoon,

The neutral switch is on the side of the transmission.

The shift cable end has to be removed and the arm unbolted and then the switch is right there and a couple attaching bolts holding it and 1 connector for electric.

1. With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, position it on a hoist.
2. It is not necessary to remove the range selector lever cable and bracket from the transmission.

Install the digital TR sensor and loosely install the screws.
