The bushings on ebay work from what I understand, but a bit pricey. The bushing in question is a P.O.S. for sure. Easy fix though if you have tools and time. First I drilled out the ball that the end of the linkage,the one your faithfull broken bushing use to ride on. popped a 3/8 inch bolt thru the drilled hole, put a piece of 3/8 inch heater hose "cut to length desired" over the bolt ( this is what the linkage ring rides on ) put a rubber gromet or rubber washer that has a hole big enough to fit over the heater hose on each side of the linkage ring ( oh and dont forget the lube - regular grease will eat rubber so use good judgement). put a washer big enough to keep your gromet or rubber washer from falling off, and then a lock nut, and I cannot stress the fact that it has to be a lock nut. DO NOT tighten the living **** out of everything, that little linkage ring is plastic after all just tighten it "lightly snugish" and just make sure your lock nut can't be un-tightened by hand. I hope all of this makes sense, anyway total repair cost- one hour of my time, about $4 of parts at the local auto parts store. best of all, it should outlast the car. Oh fyi, I used rubber parts because that is less likely to break the plastic linkage ring. Showed what I did to a mechanic in town, said now he actually knows what to do next time one of those f-ing saturns comes in with busted linkage. Good luck fellow "manual" saturn owners!

The switch is located on the side of the transmission. There is a 2-wire connection, (I believe they are coloured black/orange and red/white. If you unplug the connector and jump the 2 wires together the lights should go on. If they do then the switch is dead, if not there's something else wrong.

Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location:
The speed sensors are built right into the wheel bearings of your vehicle, at the front and rear locations. They work both with the anti-lock brakes and with the traction control systems on the vehicle.
I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Have a nice day, good luck.

well if it is the front wheel speed sensor it is part of the hub bearing and that hub unit will have to be replaced as one unit.
first raise the vechile and support it with jack stands. remove the wheel that has the bad wheel speed sensor.
then remove the brake caliper and mounting bracket.
remove the brake rotor.
remove the axle nut from axle.
unplug wheel speed sensor wire harness and bracket.
un bolt the three 15mm bolts on the back side of the spindle for the hub bearing unit mounting.
after everything is un bolted you will need to soak the mating surface of the hub to spindle with wd-40.
take a hammer and cold chisel between the mating surface of hub and spindle. work your self around the mating surface of the hub.
depending how corroded it is the sensor part of the hub unit may stay stuck in the spindle and if that happens use hammer and chisel to remove it.
clean the inner surface of the spindle where the hub sits and re install in the reverse procedure.
if you have any more question please ask i will be glad to help. good luck
