Question about Subaru Legacy
The switch is call backup light switch.
Inspect / clean the entire unit end to end.
Spray WD-40 or similar fluid on the plastic male and female socket ends to rule out bad contact points.
You may use a meter to check the socket for conductive resistance (when pressed)
I attached two pictures to help you identify the plastic socket that you need to disconnect and clean.
UK/International switch may look sightly different from USA version.
Remove / adjust this switch on level ground.
Transmission/gear fluid will leak out during removal.
MAKE SURE THE ENGINE and TRANSMISSION/GEAR BOX IS COLD before removal.
Top off / inspect all fluid level after switch installation.
This backup switch retail for around $45 USD.
