Remove the lever
Remove the gear selector position sensor bolt & nut
Unplug the electrical connector and Remove the sensor off the shaft.
Installing the Nuetral Safety Switch
Plug in the connector and mount the sensor on the shaft.
Fit the gear selector position sensor's nut & tighten to 6 lb.ft ft of torque
Re-install the lever but do not tighten it and move the selector lever to position Neutral position. Lift
off the lever and check the position of the gear selector position sensor (You can do this by checking
that the engine starts with the selector lever in positions P and N and that the reversing light comes
on only in the reverse position, continue to adjust until you get this correct)

I'm not sure what you mean by "neutral safety switch". I have the shop manual for this car (I also have a 2001) and there is nothing listed under "neutral" or "safety" or "switch" in the index that looks like it.
