The reverse light switch is located on the transmission housing which is behind/under the air filter housing/battery on the 2.0 litre D turbo model. To replace it you will need to remove the top of the air filter housing and the filter (2 screws plus release the air intake pipe connected to it by a large jubillee clip, also unclip a couple of cables). To remove the switch disconnect the cable clipped to it. You will need a deep 22mm socket and a universal/flexible coupling to unscrew the switch (as access is poor unless you remove the battery compartment/air filter housing).

SOURCE: reversing lights not work
sounds like it could just be the reverse sensor located on the acctual gearbox under bonnet, you can tell which one it is as it is one of possible two.

I think on top of the transmission, the one has a wire, and looks like a sensor. To remove, need a 19mm , open wrench or socket wrench.

The reversing lamp system consists of the following components:
When the transmission is placed in REVERSE (R), the BCM provides voltage to the reversing lamps. The reversing lamps are located within the rear lamp assemblies.
When the transmission is in REVERSE, the PCM (gasoline engine) or the Transmission Control Module (TCM) (diesel engine) sends a message over the High Speed Controller Area Network (HS-CAN) to the Body Control Module (BCM) indicating the transmission is in REVERSE. The BCM provides voltage to the reversing lamps when it receives the message that the transmission is in REVERSE and the ignition is in the RUN state. You could have a transmission range sensor problem , check to see if it is adjusted correctly ! Need to have a scan tool to make sure the BCM is receiving signal from the PCM . This is complex for someone who doesn't deal with or know about serial data communications ! All it is ,is electric inputs to a control module, then the control module configures it into data bits an bytes 1's an 0's then sends it out on the Data bus. The module that needs this info reads it an turns on the lights.This system can set codes in the bcm ,leading to a problem.
