Hi.Replacing the clutch switch is very easy and does not require any tools.Look under the dash,the switch is mounted on a bracket right on the clutch pedal.Just find it ,then remove the connector,then twist the switch and it will come out.You might need a small screw driver for re4moving the connector because sometimes they are sticky.Good luck.

Location of neutral switch on manual transmission?

need to know the make ,model, year of the vehicle as many manual transmission do not have a neutral switch
If it is a car that requires such a switch to start then the switch is normally in the clutch system ( requiring foot on the clutch) but if it is in the box as well ( foot on the clutch and in neutral) it will be in the side of the box in the area of where the selector rail is located
the exact location will be in the workshop manual or ask your local mechanic familiar with your make of vehicle

Just curious to know more about the clutch safety switch/ neutral safety switch for a 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD with the zf-6 (6 spd manual) Mine is acting up, it doesn't want to crank the engine, unless I...

The way the clutch switch works not to be to simplistic is the vehicle will not crank unless you have the clutch pushed in. It may be that you need to replace the switch its not hard or expensive to do. You may also be able to adjust it The neutral safty switch is feed from the clutch switch thats the master control because if the vehicle is not running you realy woun't need the neutral safety switch. You have a 2003 this switch should last longer then that the clutch switch. So look up under the dash at the top of the clutch pedal you will see a switch attached to the top fof the pedal and it will have a plastic threaded rod with a adjustment nut to control when the switch is triped to the on pisition adjust this nut so that the switch is compressed sooner and activates the switch with less travel distance before it gets to the floor. You still may need a new switch it depends but its inexpensive and easy to replace and will likely correct this problem

Clutch master cylinder install

It is fairly easy to do the clip on the the rod is one of the hardest parts to remove and it is hard to tell you alot more because they used three different styles of clips. on that vehicle.

Interment A/C clutch operation

Thats what it soulds like to me. The low pressure switch is what controls the clutch. Check to ensure you are topped off with refrigerant. If it is, get the low pressure switch replaced.

Replacing a clutch

First congratulations on buying a camaro. If you have the clutch replaced, cost is in the $500. range. Can you do it yourself depends on several factors. The transmission weighs around 75 pounds. Do yo have a hoist or going to do it on the ground? Are you mechanically inclined enogh to tackle the job? It is an easy straight forward job if you know what you are doing or can have someone help.
Let me kow if you have other questiions regarding this. I have done a lot of clutchs so I can answer your questions quickly.

2000 Elantra manual trans car won't crank

While the suggested resistance check of the clutch safety switch should catch a bad switch. However it may still be bad. I had the experience on my 2001 Elantra with the same problem happening intermittently. I checked and I had the delay check the switch and it looked okay. After three more trips and having them test other things including replacing the Starter motor under warranty they just replaced the switch. No more problem until 3 years later same thing started happening. I asked them to specifically check this and they just adjusted how far the switch button stuck out for teh clutch pedal to engage it under the dash. 4 days later it happened again. I said f it or something like that and went and bought the 15 dollar switch and put it in myself. I've not had a problem since then. But then I'm just coming up to the 3 yr anniversary of that switch.
You can also just bypass the switch and remember not to crank your starter without the clutch engaged unless you want to experience what whiplash is like firsthand.
Just change the switch.

Neutral safety switch....I think

The switch is located at the top of the clutch pedal assembly, above your feet. Its a little cramped, but its a simple dc two wire switch, you should be able to check it with a meter for power and to see if the switch does indeed need replacement. If thats the problem, when you see the new switch, you'll know it goes in, very easy. good luck
