How to replace the neutral safety Switch on a 2004 Montero Sport

It is a 4WD and I can get to the switch, but can not disconnect the wiring harness from the TCM. The 4WD shaft is in the way. Do I need to unbolt the shaft and the shifter linkage to get to it or does the car need to be put on a rack?

The switch is on the transmission..It is usually a dealer item but you can get one from Rockauto.com for about 1/4 of what the dealers charge.

Instructions on replaceing a bulb (headlight) in


Just changed mine yesterday. If you have the wiring harness out, all you need to do is unplug from harness. The bulb has three prongs. On mine the harness was actually fried and the plastic melted around the prongs. I had to pull and wiggle the bulb to disconnect. bought a new harness for $4 dollars and hooked up.
To get to the bulb you have to get to it from behind the headlight and may either have to remove the air filter cover or alarm horn to get to it. After pushing back the rubber boot, The bulb is clamped in with a spring clamp and you need to push the clamp togeather to disengage the bulb and harness.
